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.

FREE DRESS DAY
The student council will be holding a free dress, gold coin fund raising day on Friday 28th February. The proceeds will go towards purchasing resources for the library and a charitable donation to our local surf club at Miami. The theme is to wear your favourite board shorts or red and yellow and donate a gold coin to these wonderful causes.
ACTIVE SCHOOL TRAVEL
This year Miami SS is participating in the Active School Travel program aimed at reducing school traffic by promoting walking, riding a bike or scooter, sharing a car with other families and using public transport to and from school. It’s also about increasing physical activity levels of children. If you wish to see a safer school community with active and healthy children arriving at school bright, alert and ready to learn, I encourage you to participate in this program.
We need to evaluate the success of the program and we invite you to assist by filling in this short 10 minute survey.
The survey will ask you a series of questions about how you currently travel to and from school and your child/children’s current health and fitness levels. This includes if you or your children currently travel to school by car. We need your responses! Please access the parents Active Travel survey at the following link. All of your answers and input will be confidential. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CNSMG86
DISTRICT SWIMMING RESULTS
It was perfect weather for a swimming carnival last Tuesday 18th February. Our school had an enthusiastic and talented team, prepared to do their very best on the day. As a result, Miami Primary School came sixth place at the end of the day, but were the best performing public school out of the twenty schools competing.
We now have six talented swimmers that have successfully qualified to compete at the Regional Swimming Carnival to be held on Monday 3rd March.
The total number of competitors representing our school this year equals our best ever result… something we are very proud of. Huge congratulations must go to ALL of our team swimmers that were at Somerset last week, while we wish the best of luck to those six swimmers moving onward and upward to the next level of competition.
TSP, TAP & ESP
What a fantastic start to the year. We have 350 students participating in TSP so they are out in the fresh air, exercising, improving their skills and fitness every Tuesday and Thursday morning. I toured the groups the other day and noticed students of every ability being catered for in 11 different sports. It was great to see over 50 students participating in Tennis. The runners looked exhausted and the surfers had the biggest smiles on their faces as they walked up the beach.
We also have 120 students extending themselves in the Arts every Monday and Friday. ESP notes will be coming home in the next few days to explain what is happening in Year 3.
SO YOU THINK YOU CAN
So you think you can… is on again this year. If you are new to the school, so you think you can is Miami State School’s talent quest. Acts may include singing, dancing, musical instruments, poems, drama skits, comedy acts and many more. If you would like to take this opportunity to showcase your amazing talent then collect an entry form from outside the tuckshop.
Students may choose to enter as a group performance or as an individual act. Students are only able to perform a maximum of TWO acts (1 x group, 1 x solo). The entry fee is $5 per act. Acts are to go for no longer than 2 minutes. One entry form is needed per performance. The entry form and money needs to be handed to the ladies in the tuckshop. Please make sure your name and class is written neatly with correct money.
The auditions will be held at lunch time every day during weeks 5 and 6 (24th Feb to 7th March). If you haven’t entered in the competition you may still come along to support your friends! Entry to the hall during audition week is 50c at big lunch. We would love to see you all there! If you have any further questions please see Mrs Yates, Ms Scott or Miss Hines.
