Executive Principal’s welcome

Welcome to Corinda State High School

 
Corinda State High School is one of Brisbane’s leading co-educational public schools

We are conveniently located in a beautiful, leafy setting in the western suburbs of Brisbane, just 20 minutes by train from the city centre.

At Corinda State High School students are encouraged to achieve personal excellence in their academic endeavours, behaviour and appearance. Our school community values these important standards. We have a very strong science and maths focus, as well as an excellent reputation in the arts and sports. The school also offers a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities including instrumental music, debating and farm teams. In fact, our spacious land and our Agricultural Farm which backs onto the Oxley River and Rocklea Common land, is a unique feature of our school. 

Our school has four strategic priorities which are:

  1. ​​Revolutionary learning – to create an innovative and exciting place of learning where students can acquire and consolidate skills, knowledge and expertise and apply it in contexts not yet imagined.
  2. Exemplary staff – to engage and develop a workforce with skills, knowledge and expertise to realise transformational learning.
  3. Community and identity - to develop and retain authentic reciprocal relationships in our community and beyond which strengthen our ability to engage students locally nationally and globally.
  4. Entrepreneurial excellence – to embed robust corporate services and operational systems which reflect our schools culture of excellence, while integrating entrepreneurial intelligence and sustainable practices

We are excited by and have embraced our vision to:-  

"Exceed Your Expectations"

We are very fortunate at Corinda State High School to have a committed and hard working professional teaching staff and ancillary team. These people work long hours particularly with extra curricular activities to ensure we maximise opportunities for our students. This is evident through our Arts Excellence programs, Agricultural program, sporting achievements, and regional, state and national competitions.

Our school vision is to 'Exceed Your Expectations' and our school has a long standing reputation as one with high expectations and a focus on academic excellence.

I am extremely proud to be part of this great school where we honour tradition but embrace change.  I am part of an exceptional staff and I can honestly say that we do have a hard working dedicated staff.  When you look at all the achievements of our students in the course of a school year – this can only be attributed to the work of truly committed professionals.  This school is always alive – you just have to walk around the school after hours to see the extensive work that is undertaken coaching, training, supporting and pushing our students.  And it does not just stop at after school – I see them here weekends and during the vacation periods. 

Corinda State High School has a big heart.  Failure is not an option at Corinda  and every student graduates from this school competitive, qualified and proud to say they went to Corinda State High School. 

We live by our school motto, ensuring our students are ready for whatever challenges lie ahead…
 
Our School Motto:

Hodie Quoque Cras – ‘Not only for today but for tomorrow also’

 
Come and explore…..there’s so much more!
