Principal’s Welcome

As the Principal of Stradbroke School, I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to all our students, parents, staff, and members of the wider community who are visiting our online platform. Our school website serves as a valuable resource for information about our school’s mission and offerings.

At Stradbroke School, our dedicated and passionate staff are committed to providing a safe, nurturing, and inclusive learning environment where every student can thrive and reach their full potential.

We take great pride in offering an innovative, world-class education to our students, with a strong emphasis on fostering inquiring, knowledgeable, confident, and compassionate young individuals who contribute to creating a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

Stradbroke School is proud to be authorized to offer the internationally accredited International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP). This program is designed to develop well-rounded students who can confidently face today’s challenges with optimism and an open mind. Our teachers work collaboratively to design and implement a comprehensive learning program aligned with the Australian Curriculum. The core of the IB philosophy and program empowers students to become lifelong learners.

We deeply value the cultural diversity of our community, and this diversity is recognized and celebrated through our IB PYP transdisciplinary program.

Stradbroke School is committed to fostering strong partnerships with parents, caregivers, and the wider community to support the education of our students. Our top priorities are promoting student wellbeing for both learning and life and delivering high-quality teaching and learning experiences. We aim to instil in our students a sense of responsibility for themselves and others, encouraging them to approach their future with optimism, integrity, and an open mind.
