Excellence programs

Park Lake State School offers a range of activities to extend students with various gifts and talents. Extension programs such as Mathematics and English (taught by Pacific Pines SHS teachers), Choir, Instrumental Music and Robotics for students in a range of fields. 

Choral Excellence Program 

In 2018 Park Lake introduced the Choral Excellence program, open to selected students from Year 4 to 6.  Although the school offers choir to all students, it is recognised that some students have a deeper passion and aptitude for singing and are motivated to engage in more detailed and focused study.  The Choral Excellence program was introduced as a response to meet the needs of these particular students. ​

Japanese Excellence Program

In 2015 Park Lake State School introduced the Japanese Excellence Program with the assistance of a Languages and Innovation Grant of $10,000. Students displaying high-level progress in Japanese, Mathematics and English learning areas were invited to join the Excellence Program, run as an additional class once per week during class time.  

While the whole-school Japanese program caters for all students, and the teacher continues to differentiate and personalise learning during regular class times, the challenge remains to meet the diverse academic needs of higher achieving students. Across the year levels there is a number of students who continually demonstrate both high achievement and interest in Japanese language studies. The Japanese Excellence Program was introduced as a response to meet the needs of these particular students.
