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

2015 LEADERS
It has been exciting times at Miami over recent weeks. The number of students who nominated for 2015 Leadership positions has been overwhelming. Mrs Reynolds and the Year 5 teachers have delivered a Leadership Program to all students, and they have all demonstrated that they are leaders in their own right and are ready to be our “Year 6 Leaders” for 2015. This week we shortlisted for School Captains. We had 40 nominations that were shortlisted to 20 and now to 10. All 40 students delivered speeches to their peers and all are to be complimented on their efforts. 20 students then delivered speeches to Year 4 to 7 students on Monday. Next week I will have the opportunity to interview all of the students shortlisted for Captains, House Captains, Prefects, Student Council, Inclusive Mentor, Band and Choir Captains and Indigenous Leader with Mrs Farrington (P&C Treasurer), Mrs Reynolds and Mrs Farrugia. We are all so excited!

Students who applied for leadership positions and were not successful in the shortlisting process, or are unsuccessful in gaining positions are to be commended. All put their “hat into the ring” and “had a go” and all felt safe to do so - a credit to their teachers and to them. “A” for effort to all.

VOLUNTEERS MORNING TEA
The end of the year is nearing very quickly and one of the great things about Miami SS is the many parents, grandparents and community members that give up their time to assist our children in reaching their potential. Next Friday at 9am we welcome all volunteers to join us in the library at 9am for a cuppa and a muffin. All volunteers should have received their invite this week. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have not received it.

P & C NEWS
It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! And on Monday 1st December we will be holding our “Carols on the Green” event on the oval. Gates open at 4:30pm with festivities commencing at 6pm. We have food vendors including fish & chips and tacos and there will be drinks and glow products for sale too. We will have a special surprise at the end of the evening. We are hoping to raise funds to once again support our wonderful Chaplain, Shane Scott, and the invaluable work he does at our school. Ms Scott is working hard with your children on their Christmas songs so please come along with family and friends and enjoy what is sure to be a wonderful evening to end an amazing year. We are seeking donations of non-perishable, luxury Christmas food items to make up three luxury hampers. There is a collection box at the office. Thank you!

Are you able to offer 2 hours of your time every Tuesday morning? We are in urgent need of school banking volunteers. Please email pandc@miamiss.eq.edu.au if you can help out.

We are currently in the process of recruiting a new tuck shop convenor to start at the beginning of Term 1, 2015. We will be needing volunteers who can offer anything from 1 hour up to 4 hours on whichever day suits. A shortage of volunteers for our tuckshop has been an ongoing problem. Unfortunately if we don’t have enough volunteers we may need to look at temporarily closing one day a week. If you can help on a regular basis please email pandc@miamiss.eq.edu.au

MORE EXCITEMENT FROM OUR HIGH ACHIEVING STUDENTS - QUEST FINALISTS FROM MIAMI
Last newsletter I advised that we had six teams competing in the Quest event here at Miami. I am very excited to advise that ALL students did a fantastic job and we have two teams in the finals. In 2013 we had one team in the final so we are very proud. Our very best wishes to these two teams. It is times like these that I am proud to be a Deputy at Miami State School. We really do have such amazing students here. The below was sent to me from Mirella at BRAINways.

All teams from Miami State School demonstrated an excellent level of motivation and were prepared to work hard, to complete the challenge task at a high standard. One of the years 1-3 teams worked consistently well, placing second in each of the challenges, and qualified to participate in the Final, at Griffith University. The other years 1-3 team, did very well too. The years 4-6 teams were also motivated to do well. The years 7-10 team should be commended for the excellent quality of the work they produced, allowing them to qualify in the Quest Final, to the detriment of two year 10 teams. Well done!
Best wishes to our finalists:
Year 2 team – Thomas, Noah and Bayden
Year 7 team – Amy, DJ and Sarah
Congratulations to our participants
Year 1 - Rory, Andre, Noah
Year 4 - Taj , Kai, Jared
Year 5 - Amina, Lauren, Hannah
Year 5 - Taye, Bodie, Ashton,
