Our mission as a school is to develop learners who can identify opportunity and manage risk, who can innovate and create; who can shape and define their future. This is a vision of and for the future for our community now and into the decades to come. In working to achieve our vision we aim to support our students to become creative, critical and independent thinkers who are reflective, intellectually curious and passionate about learning. We fervently believe in our mission of 21st century learning and believe that these experiences will ensure our students have successful lives in an increasingly uncertain and challenging world.
Pimpama State Secondary College is committed to providing our students with the very best education. It is an exciting place to work with highly dedicated and professional staff, talented and enthusiastic students and a passionate and supportive community. As College Principal I continue to be inspired by the commitment and support of our community and the dedication of our staff as we continue to work together to provide a world class 21st century education for the young people in our community.
The focus of our curriculum will be on the development of three clusters of skills:
- 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.
- Effective Communicator: The ability to communicate with both individuals and groups in a positive manner.
- 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.
We are confident that the intended and unintended curriculum at our school will ensure our students are successful in the years following their time at the college. We believe that among our students there are a great many with the capacity to be redefine the future and be world changers.
