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
NATIONAL RIDE 2 SCHOOL DAY
Wednesday 19th March was National Ride 2 School Day which commenced our Active School Travel Program. We had a great turn out of students, parents and staff of Miami who participated in our part way walk/ride from McIIwain Family Park. Thank you also to our Student Leaders who assisted with the lead up to the launch. It was great to see the dramatic reduction of cars in our drop off zone that morning!
I would like to acknowledge Mike’s Bikes for donating the 4 bucket style helmets valued at $60 each, for the winners of the Bling My Ride Competition. Thank you also to A Body 2 Fit and Yoghurt Zone for your donations to give to our participating students.
The Active School Travel Program is about changing the way you move by walking, cycling, riding a scooter, carpooling or catching public transport. Students have received their Active School Travel passports to record how many times they get to school using an active form of travel. Our active travel day for the rest of Term 1 and for Term 2 will be Wednesdays. We will have Walking Wheeling Wednesdays. They will receive a stamp each Wednesday if they use an active form of travel and after five stamps they will receive a special Active Travel reward. Additionally the class with the most students actively coming to and from school on Wednesdays will win the Green Boot Trophy for the week!
With about 90% of students living within a 1.5km radius of our school, we should reach our goal and see more students actively travelling to school safely! Look out for more exciting Active Travel events to come!
Congratulations to two of our students, Jake and Brock who both recently competed in the State Little Athletics Championships. Jake achieved 6th in the 1500m and Brock won the 800m. Great effort boys!
CHAPPY'S NEWS - ‘K’s4Kids’ Fundraising Walk to support Miami
State School Chaplaincy
Miami SS currently has a Chaplain (alias ‘Happy Chappy’) 2
days a week. The position is funded by a Federal Government
grant; however there is a shortfall between the grant and actual
costs. ‘K’s4Kids’, on SATURDAY 24th MAY, is organised for
schools on the Gold Coast to help raise much needed funds for
their Chappy. We will be promoting this event to our students.
We will do the 10 km walk from Palm Beach to Coolangatta but
students can opt to do the 3.5km walk from Bilinga.
Super earlybird registration (on or before 31st March) is $5
(students) and $15 (everyone else). Registration fee covers
event t-shirt, refreshments and free return transport from
Coolangatta to your departure point.
Visit www.ks4kids.org.au for all details. To register click ‘Register to walk for a team’, complete details, and register to
walk with Miami State School. Alternatively, if your child collects a permission form it needs to be returned to the office with
registration fee by Friday 28th March (to be eligible for super
earlybird fee). Once registered participants are asked to seek sponsors/donations. A receipt book for collecting donations
can be collected from the Chaplain or front office or sponsors
can donate to you online at the K’s4Kids website.
Please note that while some staff will walk with students this
event is not an Education Qld event. Parents are invited and
encouraged to participate as well.
