Principal’s welcome

Welcome to the Beenleigh State High School Website. Our school offers a dynamic, creative and supportive learning environment in which all students are encouraged, by committed staff, to pursue personal excellence in academic pursuits, citizenship, sport and the arts. Our extended educational community provides a caring and supportive environment, recognizing and rewarding individual and cooperative achievement.  Our School values the motto “WE CARE, WE ARE RESPONSIBLE, WE ACHIEVE”, across all settings, classrooms and school grounds.
Beenleigh State High School furthermore has a proud record of academic achievement. We also have extremely successful acceleration programs in Mathematics, Science and English for our talented academic students.
Our school boasts excellent facilities and resources, a broad, flexible curriculum and timetable structure, plus a strong and supportive welfare system.  Most of our classrooms have either interactive whiteboards or fixed data projectors and in 2011, our school commenced the student laptop Program, which allows students to have their own laptop/tablet to continue their studies online and in their homes.  Unique programs exist in Music, Agriculture and Sport that cater for students.  For some of our more disengaged students, our ASDAN program provides excellent opportunities and the flexibility to work at a range of levels.  Our School has a very industrious Careers Support Officer, promoting traineeships and apprenticeships in the students’ transition to the workforce through pathways and community partnerships.  The Jigsaw educational provision provides student support in the areas of Learning Support (Literacy/Numeracy), ESL (English as a second language), Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander programs, Gifted and Talented, Enrichment/Challenge programs, Group work – Team Up (PCYC) and Living Relationships.  The school has a very supportive and active Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander unit called Mibunn Jinndi and also a strong culture group; both the groups participate in performances throughout the school year and in the community.
Beenleigh State High is a very special school fraternity.  The school has an active and supportive Parents and Community Association, strong community support, committed, highly experienced and talented staff, and outstanding student leaders.  I am very proud to be a part of Beenleigh State High School and trust that your tour of our website will be interesting and informative.  I would like to say “Beenleigh State High School is a school for which we should all be proud”.
Mr. Matt O'Hanlon
