At Park Ridge State School, we work together as partners to create a dynamic, caring and distinctive school community. Through teamwork, challenge and future-orientated innovation, we model and encourage in all of our students personal excellence, respect, responsibility and a commitment to life long learning.
The school embraces both traditional and modern values. It was first opened in 1895 as a small rural school. Today it serves as a vibrant educational facility linking a community that covers a large physical area. The students at Park Ridge come from a diverse range of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. Within Logan City the school is unique because of its long history.
Given the physical location of Park Ridge State School many children travel considerable distances to school by bus, many arriving early and remaining for a considerable period after school. Other children generally travel to and from school by private transport. A significant number of students attend child care facilities both before and after school. Camp Australia in partnership with the School's P & C Association conduct before and after school care in the Community Hall adjacent to the School's Campus. They also conduct Vacation Care!
Steeped in history, Park Ridge State School is one of the popular school in the Park Ridge area. Our aim is clear and present in all aspects of the school. Respect, Compassion and Resilience are some of the qualities demonstrated towards the personal attributes we strive to gain and display in our community.
We endeavour to celebrate each other’s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
