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.

2014 GOLD COAST LANGUAGE SPEECH CONTEST
Congratulations to Year 6 and 7 students who represented our
school in the 2014 Gold Coast Languages Speech Contest at
Griffith University Gold Coast Campus on Sunday.
Year 6: Manomai – Fourth Place,
Carmel – Highly Commended,
Year 7: DJ – Third Place,
Amy – Highly Commended.
All across the Gold Coast, from all sectors, including primary,
high schools and tertiary level, a selection of students that have
excelled in learning dedicated languages (French, Spanish,
Italian, Chinese, German and Japanese) displayed their speech
skills at the contest.
Entirely in Japanese, the students had to memorise a speech,
present it, and answer the questions the adjudicators asked.
I’d like to thank family members who supported our young,
brave, and hard-working students on the day. I hope you also
enjoyed the cultural displays and performances. We are all
proud of the students’ courage and excellent effort as well as
their great achievement.
OPTI-MINDS AND DEBATING
On Sunday our school participated in Optiminds at Griffith
University. We had four teams participate in the Opti-MINDS competition and they were outstanding!. The Opti-MINDS Creative Sustainability
Challenge is an inclusive team challenge which EMPOWERS
participants to think, create and communicate.
Opti-MINDS is a creative problem solving program for teams of
up to 7 participants. Teams are required to solve demanding,
open-ended Challenges from one of the following categories:
• Language Literature
• Science Engineering
• Social Sciences
The Opti-MINDS Challenge is an opportunity for all those with
a passion for learning and problem solving to showcase their
skills and talents in an exciting, vibrant and public way.
We had a very successful day
and one of our teams was awarded an honours and the other
a spirit award. Great work to all of our OptiMINDS students and
mums and dads for supporting their child on a Sunday! We received two TEAM
Honours and one of our teams won the Spirit of Optiminds
Our debaters attended a workshop on Wednesday with Ms
Way. The Year 7 girls were chosen to compete in a “practice” trial and our girls won with flying colours! We look forward to all
