Our school

Birkdale State School has approximately 650 students and is situated on the corner of Birkdale Road and Agnes Street in Birkdale. Our school has a diverse cultural and socio economic community. Community support is evident with active P&C Association and school community. The school has a good relationship with local high schools, child care centres and community groups. This is apparent in the popularity of the school in the area which attracts a significant number of enrolments from the surrounding suburbs.
Birkdale is celebrating its Centenary Year in 2016. Celebrations will include a number of school and community events, the ability for community members to purchase a “Centenary Shirt” as well as a range of memorabilia. Community members who have been part of the Birkdale State School Community are encouraged to support and contribute to this milestone event.
Through our Positive Behaviour for Learning we teach and model the personal attributes of being safe, being responsible and being respectful. These qualities underpin our relationships within the school. Our school also has some of the most modern and up-to-date resources, technologies and teaching equipment available. Every student has access to these resources and to the information available through the Internet.
 Our learning programs cater to the needs of every student no matter what their learning requirements. We have programs to assist students with learning difficulties through our Learning Support Programs. We have programs to inspire our brightest students and challenge them to produce their best work. We have programs focussing on reading, writing and maths designed to improve the achievement of all students across all year levels. We believe that every student can learn and we have designed learning programs and use teaching strategies that will maximise this learning.
Our Parents and Citizens' Association provide outstanding support to our school with specific financial support for our technology program, our literacy program, grounds beautification and landscaping, and our library resources. Our P&C meet on the second Monday of each month at the school and all interested members of the community are welcome to attend.
