Welcome to Port Douglas State School nestled between the crystal blue waters of the Great Barrier Reef and the rich green of World Heritage rainforest.
Our service commitment is to provide real-life opportunities for all of our students. We have strong values that are centred on developing highly effective citizens for the twenty-first century. Our focus is on the development of engaging and realistic learning activities that are student centred and rigorously assessed. Students are afforded multiple opportunities to demonstrate success in a feedback rich environment. We actively engage our community in the activities that we conduct at our school. These include: assemblies, open days, consultation meetings, creative performances and sporting events. The welfare of our students is of paramount importance to us. We have a Student Services committee that meets regularly to support students who require assistance in all aspects of their life. We celebrate the successes of our students on a regular basis via our School-Wide Positive Behaviour Programme. Our differentiated curriculum is underpinned by the principle of high expectations. We scaffold our learning activities to support students across all levels of ability.
