  • 2018 Annual Report 2 Binjour Plateau State School

    From the Principal

    School overview

    Binjour Plateau State School strives to help each child grow and develop as a strong, independent individual who maximises their potential strengths as a learner. In a small school setting, students are able to develop and sustain meaningful relationships with their peers, school staff, parents and the wider community. Our school motto, “Grow with Binjour” encapsulates our holistic view towards educating young people.

    We provide opportunities that promote individual growth, both academically and socially. We value: a good understanding of, and the ability to use, literacy and numeracy in a wide range of situations; the ability to apply problem-solving skills and conflict-resolution skills; the ability to utilise technology in a changing environment and the awareness and acceptance of individual differences. We believe that each child has individual needs and that all children have the right to be educated in a safe, caring and non-threatening environment.

    Our school's curriculum consists of eight Learning Areas identified in the National Curriculum. We have a strong focus on literacy and numeracy so that students are equipped to be problem-solvers and confident learners.

    Our school behaviour plan is aligned with the Code of School Behaviour by setting expectations of behaviour for all stakeholders. Our plan focuses on acknowledging and encouraging children in a constructive manner. We value having a safe, respectful and inclusive learning environment.

    Our small school is supported by an active and involved P&C who have organised fundraising activities to help support school initiatives and play an important part in continuing the proud history and legacy of the school. Binjour Plateau is a member of a local “small schools” cluster to ensure that our students are exposed to a range of activities including: sporting and cultural events, STEM activities, leadership and networking days and curriculum moderation days.
