Principal’s welcome

Welcome to Mount Gravatt East State School – a fantastic Queensland State School.
 
Mount Gravatt East has been offering an educational program since 1955. The school has changed considerably over recent years. Our enrolments are growing steadily due to high expectations and increased academic rigour. Our school is extremely proud of the high standards our students achieve in academic areas and in sporting and musical pursuits.
 
Our school offers enrichment programs which aim to extend our students. Students in Years 3 to Year 6 study a Language Other Than English (LOTE) – Japanese. This year the school has also offered selected students the opportunity to participate in a LOTE extension program. The school also offers selected students the opportunity to participate in Instrumental Music – Strings and Concert Band as well as the opportunity to participate in a ukulele program.
 
The school prides itself on providing students access to a range of enrichment programs. Mount Gravatt East State School subsidises ‘Science Club’, an after school enrichment Science Program for all year levels. This program is facilitated by our Head of Curriculum and Dr Joe.
 
Our school provides a whole school reading program where a Literacy Coach and trained teacher aides are scheduled to work alongside the classroom teacher three times a week. This program allows us to cater to individual student needs. 
 
The school also offers identified students in all most year levels the opportunity to participate in a before school extensive literacy intervention/extension reading program.
 
A kindergarten is onsite and currently has 44 enrolments. Kindergarten students visit our school once a week and take part in library lessons and mini science lessons. Students also borrow books from our extensive catalogue once a week and are also happy participants in our school’s Under 8’s Day. Parents who wish to enrol their child/ren at our kindergarten should contact the centre on mtgravatteast@candk.asn.au
 
We provide a high quality education in a supportive and caring environment where all students are supported to achieve academically. Each student is expected to adhere to the school’s three expectations: Be Safe, Be Respectful and Be a Learner, wear the appropriate uniform with pride, be punctual and be diligent in all tasks.
 
We are proud to be a medium sized school, close to the city, that offers an individualised service to all students and families.
