Our school

It is my pleasure to introduce you to our school through our website. Our website is a great source of information which is useful if you have enrolled your students at Surfers Paradise Primary School or if you intend to do so.

Surfers Paradise Primary School opened on the original site in Surfers Paradise in 1934. Established on Isle of Capri since 1976, the school is a well established community school delivering programs to approximately 680 girls and boys across year levels prep to year 7. Our classrooms are expansive, all wired and our classes have access to Smart Boards - the latest interactive technology.

In many ways our school is unique with a large number of students from all four corners of the globe. We are very multicultural and in addition to our regular classes, we provide focused language teaching through our Intensive English Centre for students newly arrived in Australia.

Our students and staff really enjoy the school and we are blessed with a great deal of parent support. Our P&C is very active and support a number of school  projects.   We field a wide range of activities to keep things interesting and pride ourselves on our end of term culminating days which are always well attended by our parent community. Our sports days are just wonderful and thoroughly enjoyed by all.

We provide a high level of support for students with special learning needs to include students who are challenged as well as those who need a little extra to achieve their full potential. As well as keeping a strong focus on the basics, literacy and numeracy, we strongly support the arts with large choirs, bands and string ensembles performing regularly.

It feels good living and working at Surfers Paradise Primary School. It is a very positive environment, very friendly and indeed a school where the girls and boys flourish as they progress over the years.

We look forward to meeting you.
