Principal’s welcome

Coolum State School continues to play a vital role in providing high quality public education within the Coolum community.  Building confidence within the school community is a direct result of continually focusing upon the students.  All our energy, passion and commitment go into providing the best possible opportunities for the students.

Ensuring our students are receiving quality teaching and learning within a positive fun-filled school and learning environment is reflected in the positive messages about their experiences that are passed to their parents and carers. Our weekly Parades are a shining example of this positive message. 

In school surveys our parents have made many positive comments about Coolum State School. Some of the highlights identified were:

  • community feel to the school,

  • oozing community spirit friendly staff and atmosphere,

  • fantastic teachers and happy environment

  • the fun that students have

  • positive school reputation in the community

  • the school is very accepting of all children

  • welcoming persona of staff and administrators

  • all the wonderful types of celebrations

  • the school has fun as well as being serious

  • the staff are the school’s best assets – professional, approachable, caring and happy in their working environment, a remarkable group 

Coolum State School has a very positive school climate with a caring and supportive feel to it. Our steady enrolment numbers indicate that the parents and community are very supportive and that they have great confidence in their local school.

Enquiries are always welcome and our staff are always available to take you on a guided tour of the school or to discuss the wonderful opportunities we have on offer here at Coolum State School.
