Rochedale State School is situated on the south-eastern outskirts of Brisbane in a pleasant, semi-rural area with easy access to both northern and southern highways and only 10 minutes from the city centre.  Our school is enrolment managed which means that our ability to accept enrolments from outside our catchment area may be limited. Click here for our school Enrolment Management Plan. Click here for a catchment map of the Greater Brisbane area including Rochedale State School. Click here for a local map of our school's catchment area.

The Rochedale area has quite an interesting history.

Our school is home to many different sorts of wildlife including koalas and wallabies. We once had a resident peacock called Andrew who made his home here for many years. Here are some photos of a pair of tawny frog mouths and fledgling, one of the koalas, our peacock, a wallaby and kookaburra::

High Five:

ochedale State School is practising the High Five Strategy. It is an effective strategy to develop problem-solving strategies for our students. It involves a whole school approach that can also eradicate bullying.

It is a 5 step problem solving strategy that can be used in the classroom, in the playground and for perceived bullying incidents. Click here for more information on the "High Five".

Year 1 students lining up for their first day of 2015!

See latest news page or the office or library for your copy. There is also a workbook available. Andrew's newest book -"Andrew's Adventures", is available from the library for $12.00. A great remembrance of our beautiful peacock!!


As we approach the end of Term One, teachers will begin to organise their parent/teacher interviews times. During these interviews the teachers will discuss your child’s progress to date and also set goals for next term.Each teacher will send out an individual timetable of their available times for you to select an appropriate time slot. If for any reason you are unable to make your agreed time, please phone the school to let the teacher know as soon as possible so that they are not waiting around for an interview which won’t happen and the time slot can be re-allocated.

On Friday, 13 March, our 2015 student leaders were presented with their badges in a special assembly. Congratulations to our new School Captains and Vice Captains.  Check out our new banner on these pages, with the photo of our new school leaders!!

Work began today on our new car park and pick-up/drop-off area and will continue into next term. This work will cause some disruption to people's regular parking routines and we would like to ask for people's patience and understanding while we work on improving the safety for our students. During this time parking will be at a premium as we close down the existing driveway beside the gym and then the old teachers' car park. Please do not park or drop off your children in any of the remaining staff car parks as we won't have enough parks for staff as it is!! For a plan, check out the latest news page.


Thursdays  - 8.30 to 9.30am and 2.15 to 3.15pm and Friday - 8.00am to 9.00am

Prep enrolments for 2016  opened on Monday, 2 February, 2015. Over 127 keen parents lined up to submit their enrolment forms and have a good chance of gaining a place at our school. If you are in the catchment area or have other children at school please try and put your enrolment in early so we can sort out numbers. If you have gained a place you will be notified after July this year when you should receive a letter offering you a place for your child. Then there will be teacher/parent interviews and your children will have a chance to meet their teacher for 2016 later on in the year. Click here for our new enrolment form.

We now have productive partnerships with a growing family of teachers and students around the world. Rochedale State School is the only state school in Queensland to achieve authorization status.

What does this mean for our students? 
Learning at Rochedale State School is not confined within the boundaries of traditional subject areas but is supported and enriched by them. Our program will engage all students in ways that are developmentally appropriate and challenging.

The Mission Statement of the International Baccalaureate
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organisations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people with their differences, can also be right.

Our school will have the ongoing support of The International Baccalaureate Organization and our teachers will have access to internationally recognized professional development. Click here for the General Regulations of the Primary Years Programme for students and legal guardians and click here for the Rules. These are also available from our school office.
