Elanora State School has been proudly serving the community of Elanora since 1983.
Our school is an Independent Public School which allows us more flexibility and greater autonomy. A School Council operates to monitor the school’s strategic direction and approve plans and policies.
Elanora State School has a strong tradition of excellence and we are proud of our student achievement in the Academic arena, Music and Sport. The school has been acknowledged State-wide for our Inclusive Education focus and Lead to Succeed Program.
NAPLAN achievement levels are high and we aspire to benchmark against top performing schools throughout Australia.
We are most fortunate to have an expert staff of outstanding teachers who are committed and highly skilled. Support and para-professional staff members are also highly trained in providing the best education possible for our students in terms of support, extension and maintaining a quality learning environment.
Our school Curriculum follows the Australian Curriculum and our teachers are proficient at differentiating learning experiences to cater to students’ needs and interests. We believe our teaching methods focus on the foundations of learning required for today as well as contemporary technology to develop skills for the future.
Our school proactively seeks to address the social and emotional well-being of students. We strive to be a positive, community-based school and our values are founded on developing respectful relationships and creating a sense of belonging and inclusion for all. We actively engage students in social and emotional learning activities and encourage all our students to become “Everyday Leaders”. Parents are welcome and active participants in the schooling program.
Our school’s motto, “Excellence and Honour”, guides us to do our very best, to set high standards in all that we do and to develop in our students the values of honesty, pride and respect. Our mascot is an eagle and symbolises strength, courage, seeing opportunities and staying focused on our goals. The eagle is an Aboriginal totem for this area and is seen as a protector of families.
