ABSENTEE EMAIL ADDRESS
We now have an email address that you can use to inform the school if your child is going to be absent from school for
any reason. The email address is Absentee@miamiss.eq.edu.au These absences will be processed each week and
hopefully will make it more convenient than ringing the office.
Welcome to our website ........
Welcome to the Miami Primary School website. We are an inclusive school catering for students from Preparatory to Year 7, providing a comprehensive and high quality curriculum.
Miami Primary has its own Special Education Program as well as Queensland’s best, primary school based, dedicated Talented Sports Program. Miami State School optimises every student’s opportunity to achieve their potential. Students may display talents in specific areas not necessarily academic. Our vision for our students who are gifted is that they are valued in a learning environment which both challenges and supports them to pursue excellence and develop a passion for life long learning. Our Programs allow each student to excel in their individual area. Click here for details about our Gifted & Talented Programs.
Our school seeks to offer an abundance of extension activities rarely found in the primary setting such as a science lab and wet-process darkroom and is undergoing an extensive building program to ensure facilities meet the needs of a growing community. We have recently identified a growing need for parents with children younger than Preparatory age and now offer a free ‘Move and Groove’ dance program on Monday mornings.
Our school takes a holistic approach to education. We are focussed on assisting each student to reach their academic potential as well as developing their own social confidence and responsibility. We take pride in the fact that we are a community-based school not only surrounded by elite-level sporting facilities but active and involved families. It is a place where lasting friendships are established.
This website is designed to provide a practical and informative view of our school but by no means replaces personal contact. Please browse at your leisure but also feel free to contact us at any time.
