City Beach Primary School encourages high levels of participation in academic, sporting, cultural and social programs. We encourage students to become independent and confident learners in an inclusive and enjoyable learning environment. Leadership opportunities are open to students across all year levels. Our Year 6 students undertake a wide range of leadership tasks including radio broadcasts, charity fundraising, and the organisation of recess and lunchtime activities.
The school provides specialist programs across all year levels in Visual Arts, Physical Education and Music as well as Japanese Language Studies for Years 2-6. Our music program also offers students the opportunity to join the school choir and for selected students in Years 5 and 6, access to tuition from a clarinet specialist teacher via the Instrumental Music School Services (IMSS). The Visual Arts program has a strong focus on Australian contemporary art where students learn from practicing artists through excursions and incursions. Each year the school community is invited to participate in Sculptures @ City Beach, an exhibition judged by local and national artists. Physical Education is a way of life at City Beach. There is a wide range of before and after school programs offered to all students with the aim to promote healthy and active lifestyles for all.
Our students’ well-being and educational needs benefit from a dedicated and experienced staff who are supported by an active and equally dedicated school community. The You Can Do It social and emotional learning program supports the social and emotional needs of students while teaching the key strategies that assist in unlocking their treasure chest to success and happiness. The YCDI program is underpinned by the Five Keys to Success: Getting Along; Confidence; Resilience; Persistence; and Organisation; these are promoted throughout the school.
All that City Beach strives to achieve is supported by a committed and involved community who make many highly valued contributions to the school, its staff and students. This contribution is both informal and at a school management and operational level through the Parents and Citizens (P&C) Association and School Board.
At City Beach Primary School our motto Achieving Together with Pride and our three core values of Respect,
Responsibility and Resilience are integral to all that we do.
The Reporting System
A formal report will be issued in June and December. The first report is discussed with parents at an interview.
Excursions play an important part in the learning programmes of all classes. Excursion expenses will be charged to parents each term. Written permission is required for all excursions, as is medical information. Failure to return the excursion slip will prevent the child from participating. This procedure is strictly adhered to.
Children are expected to wear school uniform on excursions unless informed otherwise. Parents are requested to complete a medical information sheet for excursions.
