Welcome to our wonderful school.
Eton State School's objective is to promote the academic, cultural, physical and social development of each child. We aim to create a safe cheerful and engaging community where every day, in every classroom, every student is learning and achieving by engaging in inclusive empowering lessons with knowledgeable and dedicated staff, all in a fun, caring and stimulating environment.
Eton State School offers quality education to students from Prep to Year 6 in multi-age classrooms. Students are encouraged and taught to become self-motivated learners who can work independently, co-operatively and happily to gain the skills they need to make choices about their lives, now, and in the future. Our school motto "Learn to Live" encapsulates our focus to build life long, confident, happy, self-directed learners in a caring, family environment.
A values-based education can strengthen students' self-esteem, optimism and commitment to personal fulfilment; and help students exercise ethical judgement and social responsibility. We also recognise that parents expect schools to help students understand and develop personal and social responsibilities. The set of values we reinforce are:
Respect - Treat others with consideration and regard, respect another person's point of view. Respect the school by wearing your school uniform with pride.
Responsibility – Be accountable for one's own actions, resolve differences in constructive, non-violent and peaceful ways, contribute to society and to civic life, take care of the environment.
Diversity, tolerance and inclusion – Be aware of others and their cultures, accept diversity within a democratic society, being included and including others.
Care and compassion – Care for self and others
Ethics (Doing your best) – Seek to accomplish something worthy and admirable, try hard, pursue excellence
Honesty and trustworthiness – Be honest, sincere and seek the truth
Integrity – Act in accordance with principles of moral and ethical conduct, ensure consistency between words and deeds.
Parental support is a vital element of any school's identity, and we are fortunate to enjoy a strong and close working relationship with the community. Parent assistance and involvement is welcomed in many ways – ready readers program, changing reading books, support with our tuckshop, library or classroom is always appreciated. We have an active Parents & Citizens' Association which aims to forge links between parents and the school, with consequent benefits to Eton State School students. All parents are urged to support the P&C.
This is our school – dedicated staff, wonderful students, spacious and well-equipped facilities, caring parents and a supportive community.
We invite you to be a part of it.
