Welcome to Ormiston State School

Overlooking Moreton Bay, Ormiston State School was established in 1872 and is situated in Redland City, approximately 30 kilometres from the Brisbane CBD. Now a proud Independent Public School, Ormiston State School has grown from being a small country school serving the rural Ormiston district to the present day where it caters for approximately 600 students from Prep to Year 6.

The school motto, Learn As We Grow, encourages every member of our school community to 'be an active learner who continues to learn' throughout their years at our school.
Ormiston State School is a community focused on continual improvement and best practice learning opportunities for students, staff and wider school community.
This motto is promoted daily throughout the school through:
·        Quality Curriculum, Pedagogy and Learning Environment;
·        Motivating students to become active and responsible partners in their own learning; and
·        Ensuring that teaching and learning opportunities are challenging, cumulative, purposeful and fun.
Whole School and extracurricular programs are focused on developing the whole child (Academic, Social/Emotional, Behavioural and Community Citizen).
Our school vision is to enact a school wide professional learning community focused on continual improvement and best practice learning opportunities for students, staff and the wider school community.
Inspirational and Optimistic, this vision, along with the Ormiston State School motto, “Learn as we Grow”, embraces the high expectations for the success of all students and staff at our school. Ormiston State School builds on a proud tradition and ensures a commitment to, and a belief in, each and every student and their learning. Our school is one of the oldest primary schools in the Redlands, but is very “futures” oriented. Students are supported and challenged to reach their full potential and achieve at or above National standards. Staff are skilled educators with expert knowledge who continually engage in professional learning, reflection and sharing. Data is used to drive decision making at whole school, class and student levels. Our highly regarded, dynamic school provides an inspiring, inclusive, stimulating and safe learning environment.
