Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Cooroy State School!

Our school has a long and proud history of serving the Cooroy community since 1909 and there is a focus on developing life-long learners who are:

* effective communicators
* socially responsible community members
* confident and self-managed individuals
* active participants in a global world
* complex thinkers and problem solvers.
We continually develop and review our programs and offerings to achieve these goals. The goal of "self-managed individuals" is enhanced by a student management policy that maximises a student's ability to manage his or her own behaviour.  This is enhanced through the School Wide Positive Behaviour program which teaches and rewards students for their positive behaviour choices.  We have a strong focus on respect - respect for oneself and for others. Our school's learning program centres around maximising the potential of every student.
Communication is a key aspect to a successful education. A positive partnership between parents, staff, students and community will enable a learning environment where your child will succeed. We encourage you to be part of the partnership and work with us. Our school continues to develop a wide range of communication strategies. Our website is kept up to date so please check back regularly. 
As Principal, my passion is to set every child up for success through providing what is best for students of this school. My decision making is focussed on providing a positive, caring, supportive learning environment where your child has the best opportunity to succeed. I invite you to come and visit so we can proudly show you what we can offer your child.
