Principal’s welcome

It is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to you and thank you for visiting the Pacific Pines State High website.

Pacific Pines State High is a happy, friendly school where strong relationships exist between staff, parents and students. We believe that these relationships underpin the teaching and learning journey which in turn creates a strong, positive school culture.  The only way of discovering this for yourself is to pay us a visit, I would love to personally take you on a tour of our amazing school.

At PPSH we instill a sense of personal and collective integrity in our students which will serve them well throughout their lives regardless of what happens in the future. In conjunction with our families we nurture our students with a sense of purpose and a clear set of values.

We continue to cultivate an expert teaching team who are trained in understanding how each individual student learns and thus provide a comprehensive curriculum.

The staff at PPSH have a strong commitment to their ongoing professional development, with a significant number of them who undertake study in further understanding adolescent learning and improving student outcomes. Staff consistently provide students with immediate feedback and create lessons where students are actively engaged in class rather than passively sitting in a classroom just listening to their teacher. This approach enables students to improve their level of achievement in their respective subjects.

At PPSH we are proud to cater for all of our students whether they are interested in our Centre of Excellence Programs in academics, creative arts or physical education. We offer Centre of Excellence programs in mathematics, engineering, applied science, creative writing, creative arts, young innovators and sports as well as offering traineeships , design and construction which we believe expertly caters for our diverse range of student learning styles to strengthen our dynamic school.

Promoting school pride in our staff and students has enabled us to create a sense of belonging.

I would like to welcome you to our school on behalf of myself and our 150 committed staff members who work at this fabulous school.
