Welcome to Coolum State School. Since its foundation in 1917 our school has established an excellent reputation across the Coolum and wider Sunshine Coast. We come together to build a sense of community, strength and success in all we do.
As Principal of Coolum State School I am privileged to lead a school community dedicated to the development of the 'whole child'. Our skilled staff understand that social emotional development comes first, and that creating a relationship with our students is paramount for successful learning to occur.
In the rapidly changing world of the 21st-century we are preparing students to meet the challenges of the future. Success in the future will depend on a range of skills and personal attributes that come from a well-rounded education such as ours. The careful balance of academic, sporting, cultural and social programs at Coolum State School will equip students for successful and fulfilling lives.
Our curriculum offerings foster an inherent focus on inquiry, where students are encouraged to be curious and explore their local surrounds in a safe and inclusive environment. We are fortunate that our local area allows us the ability to enhance our academic offerings, arts programs and sporting pathways for our students.
Our experienced and dedicated staff nurture and challenge students to perform to the best of their ability across the full range of school programs and to take advantage of all the wonderful opportunities that are available to them.
From Prep to Year 6, we pride ourselves on our ability to prepare our students for the world of tomorrow, today. Creating intentional opportunities for students to be creative, effective communicators, collaborators and critical thinkers provide students with valuable life attributes for a future beyond Coolum State School.
We invite you to come and explore the benefits of a Coolum State School education and we look forward to welcoming you to our school community.
