Principal’s welcome

Welcome to the Dayboro State School website and thank you  for providing us the opportunity to share some aspects of our school with you.

Our school is a focal point of the Dayboro community and has been proudly offering quality education since 1874. To this day, our school staff and our community share the common vision of inspiring our students to reach their full potential in a safe, caring and educationally challenging environment. 

The primary years of schooling have a special place in the educational experience of children. These years are crucial in a child’s development providing the foundation for success as life-long learners. At Dayboro, we believe that such a foundation is built in a safe, happy and supportive environment where students remain enthusiastic learners. This is facilitated through positive relationships between teachers and students, programs that are responsive to the needs of learners, and teaching strategies and learning experiences that motivate students to learn.

At Dayboro we provide many opportunities and specific programs to develop skills and knowledge in sport, the performing arts and student leadership.  We strive purposely to improve on the quality of education that we deliver through strategies that encourage continuous improvement in every student.

We hold high expectations for our students both in their school work and behaviour. These expectations are complemented by our school values that guide our actions and behaviours throughout the school. Our values: Be Respectful, Be Positive, Be Responsible, Be Tolerant and Be Proud are shared across all parties in our school community and are strongly embedded throughout our school.

Dayboro State School is a community oriented school. Parents are valued as the partners in the education of their children, contributing their initiative, energy, time and expertise to the school.

I am very proud to be the Principal leading a committed and professional staff who both challenge and nurture the students in their care.

We look forward to welcoming your child/ren to our school community. Please do not hesitate to contact the school for further information.
