Principal’s welcome

Welcome to Glenmore State School.

Glenmore was established in 1889 and we are very proud of the part it has played in the education of thousands of children in Rockhampton. 

Each year, we continue on in the spirit of providing “Quality Learning in a Caring Environment.”

QUALITY LEARNING                                         

Glenmore State School is committed to using research based teaching methods to ensure that children have developed the skills they need to succeed beyond primary school.

As one of 10 Fleming Schools in Central Queensland, the staff at our school are mentored by Mr John Fleming of Haileybury College in Melbourne.  The Fleming model of Explicit Instruction provides students with opportunities to know, practise and master the skills and knowledge they need to move through school with success. 

At Glenmore State School, we are committed to ensuring that your children are skilled in reading, writing and numeracy.  Clear benchmarks of achievement have been set and each child is monitored against these regularly.

Students have opportunities to participate in a range of other learning experiences which enhance their learning.  These include: instrumental music (woodwind and strings), Choir, Choral Festival, inter-school sport, cheerleading, ICAS English Competition, ICAS Maths Competition, ICAS Science Competition, Maths Team Challenge, the Premier’s Reading Challenge, Book Week, Reader's Cup, IT Club and Extended Learning Programs in association with Glenmore State High School.

A CARING ENVIRONMENT

At Glenmore, we want students to be Respectful, Responsible and a Learner. We have a Responsible Behaviour plan which supports students in their growth and emphasises the notion of acknowledging good behaviour. We see the results of this each week on parade where every student has the opportunity to be acknowledged for doing the right thing.

We have a research backed Anti Bullying Policy which clearly lays out a structure for children to follow so that they are confident when dealing with any issues that may arise in the playground.

We have programs designed to support the learning of all groups in our school, including the Glenmore Indigenous Play group, homework club twice a week, breakfast club, an English as an Additional Language or Dialect hub, a school chaplain, Kids Hope mentors and a staff dedicated to providing extra support for students with disabilities.

Glenmore State School continues on its journey of providing a Quality Education in a Caring Environment and we invite you to join us.
