Our school philosophy
The motto of our school is “catering for the individual”. This is realised through our school creating and maintaining a safe, tolerant and disciplined learning environment within which our students prepare to become active and reflective Australian citizens with a disposition to lifelong learning. They will be able to participate in and shape community, economic and political life in Queensland and the nation. They will be able to engage confidently with other cultures at home and abroad.
Beliefs and Values
The five core values at Corinda State School are: Consideration, Safe & Smart, Try Your Best, Appreciate and Respect. The first letters of each value form the acronym CSTAR which is the recognisable branding of our school and our Positive Behaviour for Learning implementation.
These values help shape and build the skills of all our students to be confident, self-disciplined and kind young people. Our school staff believe that communication and positive connections with other people are the most valuable skills our communities need now and in the future.
At Corinda our expectations are:
C – consideration
S – safe and smart
T – try our best
A – appreciate
R – respect
