Welcome to Pimpama State Secondary College

The college motto ‘Together We Succeed’ and our logo represent the importance we place on the partnership between the college, our staff, your child and their family. We believe that this partnership is a strong predictor of success for our students.

Our Shared Beliefs about Quality Teaching

As a professional learning community we are guided by the following beliefs:

  1. Teachers take responsibility for their own learning, they re-think and challenge their current practices and are comfortable being uncomfortable.

  2. Teachers take responsibility for student learning and believe that every child can achieve high standards. They plan well and know that 90% of differentiation happens before the students enter the classroom.

  3. Teachers work together to improve student learning outcomes and know competition will not beat collaboration.

  4. Teachers know that purposeful and directed feedback is a strong predictor of success.

  5. Teachers believe that excellence is an attitude, not an outcome.

The focus of our curriculum will be on the development of three clusters of skills;

  1. Digital Literacy: An understanding about how technology can be used to achieve a specific purpose or goal and the ability to find, access, evaluate and use information.

  2. Effective Communicator: The ability to communicate with both individuals and groups in a positive manner.

  3. 21st Century Learner: Creative thinking encourages students to imagine, question and take risks. It is the means of producing something new or original that is either personally or culturally significant. Independent inquiry and reflective learning encourage students to explore, evaluate, challenge, seek feedback and share their learning.

I invite you and your child to join us on our journey in creating a world class educational experience for our students and I welcome you to our college community.

Warm regards
John Thornberry
College Principal​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
