At Springbrook State School our moral purpose is to be advocates who make a difference for every child to succeed, every day. To give our students agency and voice so they grow to become active citizens in an ever changing world.
A Unique Environment
Along with beautiful surroundings, we have excellent staff who strive to work for the benefit of all students. The multi-age composition of classes encourages students to be extended in a supportive, caring school environment. We aim to inspire our students to be the best that they can be, as we learn and grow together.
Teaching and Learning
Springbrook State School has a commitment to reviewing its role in creating, innovating and reflecting academic and technological changes.
Our curriculum is based on the Australian Curriculum, aimed at ensuring each and every student is reaching their full potential in all learning areas, utilising 1:1 teacher and teacher-aide support with fully integrated wireless technology throughout the school.
Springbrook State School is fortunate to have professional staff who work with students and their parents to improve learning outcomes. Our staff are dedicated to providing a fun, high quality learning environment for all students.
The first Springbrook primary school opened in 1911 with an enrolment of 15 students. Springbrook School was built in the shadows of a New England Blackbutt that was approximately 1,000 years old. A year after the school opened, the tree was declared a threat to the safety of the school and was felled by axe in a morning. It is hard to imagine such a decision being made today!
In 1970 enrolment numbers at Springbrook School fell to 4 and the school was closed. The original school building is now the Springbrook National Park Information Centre located on Old School Road.
Activities and Events
Students at Springbrook State School participate in a number of activities and events each year. Students participate in Cross Country, Harmony Day, Book Parade, Bonnet Parade, ANZAC Day March, Athletics Carnival, Soccer and Netball Carnival and School Swimming to name a few.
Springbrook State School is an active part of the Springbrook Community, we are continually involved in helping to reintroduce an endangered butterfly species the Richmond Birdwing Butterfly by planting the Richmond Birdwing Butterfly Vines at the school.
