Principal’s welcome

Welcome to Port Douglas State School. All staff at this school are committed to every child enrolled, to bring out their best and succeed at their highest level. Indeed, our school motto is “Endeavour to Succeed” and I expect all students and staff to live out this motto - everyday.
Our curriculum follows the Australian national standards and uses teaching methodologies to best match the delivery and learning modes for each subject and student needs. We are of course responsive and reflective of community expectations on student learning and outcomes, and incorporate local perspectives in our teaching and learning programs.
All staff are supported to develop and maintain their teaching skills so that student learning and engagement is maximised at all times during the school day and across each year.
Our school and community are situated in a stunningly beautiful location, surrounded by world heritage rainforest and the door to the Great Barrier Reef. Take some time to explore our website and see what we are about, especially if you are a prospective member of our welcoming community.
