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
CAMP - YEARS 5 & 7
Students in years 5 and 7 have had the opportunity to attend the Sport & Excellence Camp at Runaway Bay on separate occasions over the past 2 weeks. Students have enjoyed various activities including Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Sailing, Canoeing, Laser Skirmish, Pool and Beach Games and Team Building activities.
Over the 3 days, students learnt many important values including:
- Determination; when trying to get the teachers during Laser Skirmish
- Perseverance; when the weather was not kind during some water activities
- Independence; when having to get their own belongings organised for the daily activities without a parent checking on them as well as choosing their own food at meal times.
This has been the first opportunity many students have had to stay away from the comfort of their own home and all students did an amazing job. Children made new friends and had the chance to learn and grow away from the school environment. Teachers were extremely proud of all students whilst on camp.
Congratulations to Diesel who finished 11th at the Regional Cross Country championships. Great work Diesel!
This Sunday 9th June, 8 Year 7 aerobic students will be fighting for a place in the National Championships. The Year 7 team called Miami Beach Babes (Divisha, Claudia, Lily, Bridget, Kalani, Josie and Taylah) have been training very hard all year to perfect their routine. They placed 3rd in the prelimary final and hope to bring home a medal at this weekends State Championships held at Ormiston College. The routine they will perform is a complex and energetic routine that they must showcase both, strength and flexibility. The girls will be judged on their performance by technical and artistic judges. Schools from around Queensland compete at this event and Miami has been very lucky to place in the top three. The girls train twice a week and during TSP time and have been committed to doing some outside school hours training too. On behalf of the Miami State School community I would like to wish the girls the best of luck in the State School Aerobics Championships.
SMART CHOICES TUCKSHOP
The tuckshop will be providing a $2.00 sausage sizzle on Thursday 13th June (same day as the Junior athletics carnival). Preps to year 7 are welcome to purchase a sausage and/or a drink.

Parents please also feel free to come and purchase a sausage or a coffee at anytime throught the day. There will no other "hot foods" made at morning tea on this day.
Good vision is important for a child’s educational, physical and social development. With approximately 1 in 4 Australian children suffering from an undetected vision problem, vision screening is vital for your child’s learning to give him/her the best chance of reaching their full learning potential. Many children try to adapt to their vision problem without knowing they could see better.
The Child Health Nurse will commence Vision Screening for all Prep Year children Tuesday 11th June. If you wish to have your child participate in this very important health screening, please complete and sign the Vision Consent form sent home with your child and return this to your child’s class teacher as soon as possible.
All parents will be advised in writing of the outcome of your child’s screening.
Our next meeting will held at 3.15pm on Wednesday 12th June in the library. Hope to see you there!
