Maroochydore State School engages students in a learning community that encourages excellence, supports diversity, and fosters innovation. We are proud to be part of the #qldtechschools pilot, Minecraft Education Edition pilot and Makerspace project.

Our Curriculum programs are based on the Australian National Curriculum.  All of our staff have a strong focus on student engagement, supporting individual achievement by providing a place of challenging activities and whole learning through inspiring teaching and learning opportunities. Our Curriculum Framework allows for flexibility in implementation, to allow teachers to be responsive to the needs and interests of the students, within the parameters of the requirements of Education Queensland.

The Australian Curriculum is designed to help all young Australians to become successful learners, confident and creative individuals, and active and informed citizens.  Students develop capability when they apply knowledge and skills confidently, effectively and appropriately in complex and changing circumstances, in their learning at school and in their lives outside school.
