Springwood Road State School is the first state school in Queensland to become a Leader in Me school. This demonstrates our courage and willingness to be responsive to the needs of our students now and for the future. Our staff lead by example, taking intentional risks with our own learning so that our students feel safe and secure to take guided risks with their learning - this develops a positive growth mindset. Our focus is on developing a community that values inclusivity, is respectful of diversity and is actively engaged in all aspects of school life.
We offer a diverse range of opportunities for every student so they can succeed academically, socially and emotionally today, tomorrow and in the future. Our school's Pedagogical Framework aligns to The Leader in Me way of life and offers a clear continuum for staff to continually strengthen their capacity to deliver current, robust learning programs. Our school sets high, achievable expectations for students, staff, families and our wider community.
