Our Junior School Philosophy

Junior Secondary at Pacific Pines State High School focuses on the learner as the whole student.
Every lesson, every day, teachers and staff ensure that students are nurtured and provided with the tools to become lifelong learners through quality teaching. Teachers actively engage Junior Secondary students in learning that is relevant, authentic and challenging. Students develop a sense of belonging and connectedness to their school, peers and teachers.
Students, parents and the school are partners in preparing students for tomorrow’s challenges.
