Dear Parent / Carer
On behalf of the staff, students and parents of Rochedale State School, I would like to welcome your family to our school. The staff of Rochedale State School are committed to providing a quality education for our students and are proud to be part of a strong public education system.
Rochedale was officially opened in 1931 to serve the southern edge of Brisbane City and today our current enrolment exceeds 1010 students from Prep to Year 6. As an Independent Public School, Rochedale continues to explore innovations in learning to ensure the best outcomes for all students.
We are proud to be the first primary state school in Queensland to implement the International Baccalaureate (PYP) framework as the means for delivering the Australian Curriculum. By using this international accredited, pedagogical framework we offer our students a global perspective on learning which we believe connects our students to the real world and helps produce outstanding citizens for the future.
At Rochedale State School we believe that the best education occurs when there is a good working partnership between parent, teacher and child. If all three have common goals and aspirations then the child is most likely to be both happy and successful in their school life.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in our school.
Principal Rochedale State School
