As a leader in education in Logan City, Kingston State School has a long and proud history. Our wonderful school was founded over 100 years ago! Kingston State School is situated in the heart of Logan City in the South East Region of Queensland with a student population of approximately 560 students from very diverse backgrounds. We are privileged to welcome a large number (approx.21%) of Indigenous students to our school. This is one of the largest percentages for state schools in the South East Region. We also welcome a significantly high number of students from the Pacific Islands.
At Kingston State School we provide a culture that values and promotes learning and has high expectations for the success of all students. Our school uses collaboration and innovation to effectively provide high quality teaching and learning on a daily basis. We regularly celebrate the successes of our students and staff. Our school caters for the whole child through academics, sporting opportunities and a whole school social/emotional wellbeing program. We prioritise the teaching of reading and writing in all classrooms and we are having some great successes in improving our students' reading and writing.
We have become a school of choice for students who are passionate and talented in the Arts. Each term our students get to experience a different stream of the Arts, including: Dance, Music, Drama and Visual Art. Our school has had wonderful success in Wakakirri in recent years along with amazing success in Cheerleading.
We are also a school of choice for students who are interested in Technology. We offer dedicated Technology classes with a focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
Kingston State School is also very proud of our sporting athletes. We have many passionate and talented students who are able to further develop their sporting skills here at Kingston.
We acknowledge that school can impact significantly on children's social and emotional wellbeing. We therefore provide a supportive and caring school community, characterised by a sense of connectedness and belonging among students, positive classroom climates, good relationships with teachers and peers, and parental and wider community involvement within our school. Our Moral purpose, 'Every student engaged in authentic learning that lasts a lifetime' ensures learning experiences are relevant and exciting for our learners and that what we teach, provides knowledge and skills for lifelong success.
