Every student succeeding

Every student confidently creating their future

Empowering students to embrace the opportunities of new industries, technology and a globally connected world.

Young people are navigating an increasingly complex world. Developing the confidence, skills and resilience to respond positively to the challenges ahead has a lasting impact on mental health and wellbeing throughout their lives.

We are setting young Queenslanders on the path to lifelong success by inspiring and challenging students to be creative and critical thinkers. Working together with school communities, we are keeping our young people safe, healthy and supported to achieve their best.

Embracing and supporting the unique talents and needs of each and every student is at the heart of our approach. Valuing the diverse identities, beliefs, cultures, languages and abilities of all people in the school community creates inclusive and respectful environments centred on student learning and wellbeing.

We are encouraging students to be empowered and in control of their learning journey and outcomes. We provide the opportunities for students to design their future pathways through a diverse curriculum, and support them to confidently progress from school to employment, entrepreneurship, training or further study.

Our strategies

  • Nurture the wellbeing of all children and young people, ensuring they are safe, valued and respected.
  • Engage families to play an active role in their child’s learning and development.
  • Support culturally responsive learning for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people.
  • Build resilience for learning to reduce the impact of vulnerability.
  • Support positive transitions from early education, to school and on to further education, training and employment pathways.
  • Empower every student to engage in learning and achieve growth each year.
  • Support schools to continue their improvement journey.

Students need to be able to think like entrepreneurs: resourceful, flexible, creative and global.
