Park Lake State School opened in 2008 in the West Pacific Pines area as a direct result of current rapid residential development and future development plans.
The school opened with an enrolment of 212 students and is expecting to have over 950 enrolments in 2017. We have created a community school, one which encompasses an atmosphere of caring, respect, ownership, quality learning experiences and personal development.
We invite all families to become a part of our learning community, “Learning and Growing Together” and developing Park Lake State School as a highly respected part of our local community. This is supported by a very active Parents and Citizens Association which works alongside our school team to provide the best learning experiences for our students.
Our school engages fully in the Australian Curriculum providing high
quality educational experiences for our students in an environment which is
safe and holds very high expectations for both students and staff. We want our students to be successful people
who can function in our society as individuals and as team players. To support the development of personal growth
we implement the You Can Do It! Program which focuses on Resilience, Getting
Along, Persistence, Confidence and Organisation. Academically we have strong processes for
identifying the needs of individuals and implement intervention programs and
high performance strategies, in conjunction with personal goals in Literacy and

airflow measures to control temperature and the storage of water on site.
Extra-curricular activities are a strong feature of our school,

activities. These clubs vary from year

outside of school hours. We have an

Park Lake State School and our school community have had a fantastic
journey since opening in 2008. We are
highly respected amongst both the local and educational communities as a school
that not only provides a quality education with high expectations, but as one
that genuinely cares for the welfare and development of our students as whole
people. As a community, we have
established close links with our local Early Childhood Education Centres, local
primary schools and high schools. We
think of ourselves as the Park Lake family, proudly wearing the name Park Lake
State School and striving to be the best we can be at all times.
We look forward to welcoming you into our
Park Lake Family,
