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.

PREP ENROLMENTS FOR 2015 OPEN!!
We are now accepting 2015 Prep enrolment forms but due to limited spaces for out of catchment students, it is a good idea to get your enrolment forms in early if you are not in our catchment area. It would also be a great help in working out placements for 2015, if parents of children in the catchment area and siblings of students already enrolled could also put their forms in early so we know numbers. Thanks.

INDEPENDENT PUBLIC SCHOOL - Rochedale State School

International Baccalaureate World School
Rochedale State School is now authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Organization, Primary Years Programme. 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.

Our sporting teams compete in Softball, Cricket, T-Ball, Rugby League, Tennis and Netball and perform creditably in all these sports. We also have Aussie Rules teams, the Rochedale Ravens, training and playing games on our school oval on the weekend during the footy season.

Our classrooms from Prep to Year 7 are fully air-conditioned with reverse cycle units. Every classroom has an interactive white board and projector for the teachers' and students' use and they are an invaluable tool for improving student learning outcomes and streamlining lesson planning. Our SEU unit  makes use of iPads to enhance learning for the children in their unit and most teachers also use iPads with their units of inquiry and interactive whiteboards.

Our library is large and well stocked and is fully computerised to provide an excellent source of reference and reading material. It also has wireless internet for use with teachers' and visitors laptops.

Our computer lab in the library

Our school computers include over 200 IBM compatible PC's  with our student to computer ratio being around 5:1.  We also have around 40 iPads that are used in the classroom and support areas and 45 laptops spread amongst the classes. As one of the original 104 "Leading Schools" in Queensland, we are fully cabled, with every classroom having at least 4 networked computers and Internet access.

Several rooms including the library have wireless access with 9 more wireless access points to be installed at the start of 2014 and more planned!! All teachers have their own Departmental laptop. Our computer lab, situated in our school library, has 28 computers for children to use. See photo above!
 

Our school Home Page has been up and running for 18 years now and is expanding and we hope, improving, all the time. The colours on these pages reflect the school colours of blue and gold and the banner shows our School Captains in their uniforms.  This site aims to make the resources of the Internet available to students, to provide information about our school and showcase our student's work. We hope you will enjoy our pages and find them interesting and informative.
