Ingham State School caters for Prep to Year 6 studentds and is located in the township approximately 110 kilometres north of Townsville.
The purpose of Ingham State School is to acknowledge that while our students have different learning capabilities and styles they all have the right to develop to their full potential academically, artistically, emotionally, socially and physically. We need to ensure our students are optimistic, motivated and are developing abilities and attitudes that will enable them to function effectively and productively in a global community that continues to change rapidly economically, socially and in technological terms-that they become lifelong learners.
This will be achieved by developing strong and resilient relationships with parents and community, teaching students life skills, problem solving, independence, responsibility and empathy, creating a safe, tolerant and disciplined environment for students, providing pedagogy that ensures students master literacy and numeracy, promoting understanding of and the effective use of information and communication technologies, focusing on inclusion, communicating and collaborating with all stakeholders, developing multi-cultural understandings throughout the school community, promoting active participation within the community, creating an environment where students can achieve a scientific understanding of the world.
We strive to bring out the best in all our students. Our trans-disciplinary approach to curriculum integration dissolves all boundaries between the disciplines and sets higher order learning objectives to shape curriculum to address issues of productive citizenship and construction of meaning through real-world issues, questions and problems.
