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.

With both our Year 6 & Year 7 cohorts off to High School, class numbers and staffing becomes a little more complex than in past years.

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.

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.

Many rooms including the library have wireless access with  more wireless access points to be installed at the start of 2015!! 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!
