Principal's welcome

A very warm welcome to Palm Beach State School. On behalf of the staff, parents and students of Palm Beach State School, I’d like to welcome you to our website and thank you for your time in your quest to learn more about our fantastic school.

Our school is a unique Gold Coast school as we are considered a small school in this geographical area, and one of the few within two hundred metres of the local beach.  We currently have approximately 630 students and are referred to as 'The best kept secret on the Gold Coast' by our community.  The size of this school allows us to offer a safe, supportive environment where no student remains anonymous.  We are also proud of the variety of extra-curricular activities we provide in music and the performing arts, sport, camps and excursions, as well as the rigorous and well planned curriculum explicitly taught in each classroom.
Our long serving and stable teaching staff are very committed in ensuring all students achieve their best. We cater for the individual learning needs of students through a variety of extension and intervention programs.  The use of technology is also a feature of our school through our One2One ICT program.  Our school is fully networked with extensive wireless capabilities, and we are continually expanding our computer hardware and professional knowledge. 
We all consider ourselves very fortunate to be a part of Palm Beach State School and we pride ourselves on the partnerships we have with the parents and the wider community.  Our Parents and Citizens Association welcomes your attendance at meetings if you wish to become involved.  I look forward to you joining our 'Palm Beach Family'. If you have any further enquiries please do not hesitate to contact our school office on 55208333.
Kind regards
Sandra Thompson
