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.

Year 4 Camp 2015

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".

Fun at the school Fete

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!!



2016 will see a continued focus on ensuring high standards of presentation and adherence to the Dress Code at our school by all students. I would encourage all parents and carers, and students as appropriate, to revisit the Dress Code to confirm what the uniform expectations are at our school. If you are unsure of these expectations, please access a copy via our website or from our office. See latest news page for more.

Learner Profile: Balanced - Students should read a variety of authors and books to become balanced readers and then share their week’s reading list with their teacher. Depending on age and reading ability of students this may be done as a whole class, small groups or individually. Check with your child’s teacher to find out how it will be done in your child’s room.

PREP 2016
Rochedale State School has experienced unprecedented demand for Prep next year with over 230 applications for our 125 places. As a result we have had to enforce our enrolment management plan and restrict enrolments to primarily families living within our catchment area, or with existing siblings at our school. If you are in these groups and are yet to enrol, please ensure you return your completed paper work including birth certificate to the office ASAP to secure your place. Even if you are an existing family, you must still enrol your Prep child for next year. Unfortunately at this time we are not in a position to offer any Prep places to people outside of our catchment.

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

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.

At Rochedale State School in 2013, we have around 900 pupils in Prep to Year 7 with 35 classroom teachers. Our curriculum includes Chinese or French. Years 2 and 4 have an hour of Chinese per week and will continue learning Chinese through to Year 7 and Years 6 and 7 have 1.5 hours of Chinese per week. Years 3 and 5 have 1 hour of French per week and will continue their French studies through to Year 7. Prep and Year 1 have half an hour of Chinese per week. We have  Music and Physical Education Specialists, 5 days a week as well as Learning Support teachers.

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 250 IBM compatible PC's  with our student to computer ratio being around 4:1.  We also have  a large number of iPads that are used in the classroom and support areas and over 110 laptops spread amongst the classes in sets of 28 per year level from Years 3 - 6. As one of the original 104 "Leading Schools" in Queensland, we are fully cabled, with every classroom having 6 networked computers and Internet access. All rooms including the library now have wireless access!!! 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 19 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.
