Coombabah State High School

Welcome to 2015 and our wonderful school.  Last year I stated “Welcome to one of the safest and supportive schools in Queensland”.  I based this on our outstanding student and parent survey results.  I am very proud to say our continuous growth has improved those results even further.  In the 2014 school opinion survey held in August, 98% of parents agreed that “This is a good school” and 96% agreed that “My child feels safe at this school”.  From the students perspective 99.2% agreed that “I like being at my school” and “I am getting a good education at my school”. 
Our behaviour data continues to be at one third of the state average including primary schools.  Academically we are above state average in improvement in Literacy and Numeracy combined with strong results in OP scores linked to a culture of high expectations.
We have made one change to our leadership team (due to Paul Bevan’s retirement) that has been together for seven years and works as a very experienced partnership.  From term 2 2015 we announce our new Deputy Principal to the team Mr Lou Oberholzer.  Lou has many year’s experience in high schools.
Our school’s vision - Building Partnerships and Pathways encapsulates my personal philosophy of establishing a positive learning relationship between ourselves, students and parents that will facilitate the best outcomes for each student. Our Facebook page is a partnership activity to keep our FB friends up to date on our extensive range of activities. 
It would be our honour to guide your child through secondary schooling and onto a successful life pathway.
