Principal’s welcome



 
Welcome to Sandgate State School!
My name is Warren Beetson and I was privileged to be appointed as Principal of Sandgate State School in 2008. I have been the Principal of a number of State Schools throughout Queensland over the past 20 years. I am passionate about the quality of public education in Queensland and the rich diversity that our education system embraces.
Sandgate Sate School is a medium sized school located in Bramble Bay with our Prep to year 6 student enrolments predominantly drawn from the suburbs of Sandgate and Deagon. The school maintains an environment reflective of its high expectations for learning, behaviour and student well-being.

The student population is unique, combining a rich blend of socio-economic and culturally diverse elements. Students are organized into straight year level class groupings within Teaching and Learning Pods; Junior P-2, Middle 3-4, Senior 5-6. Sandgate is a Kids Matter school with an explicit focus on developing social and emotional competency in our students.

The School is highly regarded by staff members, parents, students and members of the local community. The school and local community are closely linked which enables school community partnerships to be continually strengthened.
Our vision is to be an innovative learning community that engages and supports students in a futures orientated education, challenging them to excel and be creative, active, informed and respected citizens in an evolving global community.
Our school is committed to providing an education that: 
  • Promotes excellence in teaching and learning
  • Is strategically planned
  • Is inclusive
  • Makes links with the local and global community
  • Is intellectually challenging
Ever Aim High!
