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.
Latest News & Events
MIAMI COMMUNITY FAIR
What an extraordinary event! FUN in the Spring SUN!
Thank you to all for your support of the Community Fair! Your contributions were greatly appreciated. Whether you made a donation, supported through attendance, helped with set up or pack up, assisted teachers and the P&C. Thank you!
This was the first fair in ten years, and it was amazing!
Everyone went above and beyond, and again a big thank you, however it would be remiss of me to not acknowledge the personal efforts of parent Sam - the Fair Convenor, the Fair Committee, and the P&C Exec and their team. Our mantra- “Together Everybody Achieves More” was certainly in action. On behalf of the kids, parents and wider community- great effort team!!
Last week I acknowledged some of our teams from Optiminds. This week I would like to make mention of four more of our teams:
What an exciting term the Music Department has had with the Gold Coast Eisteddfod, the Community Fair and assembly performances. All the students involved within the music department should be very proud of themselves and what they have accomplished so far this year.
Term 4 looks to be a very exciting and busy time with 2 big performances for the Senior Choir involving the Active School Travel Concert and the Mass Choir with Music Count Us In. Our end of year concert will fall on the 18th November this year with all our wonderful students performing, not to mention the opportunity to perform at Academic Awards Night.
Swimming Carnival Nominations
Over the past couple of weeks, Mrs Yates and myself have been taking nominations for the championship events to be held at our swimming carnival next Thursday September 18. The championship events are the 50m Freestyle, 50m Backstroke, 50m Breaststroke, 50m Butterfly and 200m Individual Medley. There will be 25m events and novelty races for those children that don’t wish to participate in the championship races on the day (children may nominate for these on the day of the carnival).
Lots of nomination forms have been handed out, but not all have been returned. Nominations close for the championship races this Thursday morning at 9am sharp, so please have all forms returned to myself, Mrs Yates or the office before then.
Track and Field Championships
Last week, we had three of our students represent Gold Coast South at the regional track and field championships. Congratulations to:
Sayla 3rd 800m
Brock 3rd 800m
Zac 4th 200m & 5th 100m
Both Brock and Sayla have qualified for the State Champions to be held next month in Brisbane. We wish them all the best!
Also, we would like to wish Jake all the best who is also competing in the 13 years 1500m today at Griffith University to secure himself a place in the South Coast team. We wish him all the best, stay tuned for his results!
P&C Meetings will now be held on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 3.15pm in the Library. Sandi Potter,
P & C President
