Coombabah State High School

Welcome all our new families to the wonderful Coombabah State High School community.  In this modern age where data appears to drive everything, there is lack of information around the key aspects of a school beyond its academic outcomes.  A sense of belonging and inclusiveness is one of these and clearly is most difficult to portray in a graph.  Both of these aspects, however, are enthusiastically embraced by our school community. 
2017 has seen our continued steady growth.  The extra numbers has enable us to recruit two additional teachers, allowing us to timetable an extra class in Year 7, reducing class numbers to 24.  This is  well below the official size of 28.  I believe this is an important consideration to ensuring that we deliver on our personalised approach to education.
Congratulations to our graduating group of 2016.  Not only did every student graduate with a Queensland Certificate of Education but all of our students applying for University and TAFE were offered placements.  I spoke to our teachers about the amazing perseverance they demonstrated to get every single graduating student to successfully complete their high school experience.  Australian research indicates that this will lead to a greater chance of employment in higher income  occupations.
Our school mission statement includes our drive to develop “Future ready students: Value learning new skills to reach their goals.  These young adults work collaboratively, are resilient, respectful and responsible.  They contribute positively, are motivated, independent and prepared for new challenges.
Coombabah State High School certainly is a “Pathway to Success”
