Principal's welcome

Welcome to MacGregor State School   
 
Our school opened in 1972. We have established a very proud reputation as a school of excellence; consistently being one of the highest performing schools in student academic, performing arts and sporting results. Our school offers programs for about 1280 students in Prep to Year 6. Our school opened in 1972.
 
Our local community supports our school through high demand for enrolment. Approximately 75% of our students do not live locally, but travel to attend our school. We attract students from over 65 suburbs of Brisbane. Nearly 70% of our students identify with a non-English speaking cultural background. A copy of our Enrolment Catchment Boundary Map, our Enrolment forms and processes are on our school website. If you live “out of catchment” and your enrolment application is successful there will be an Enrolment Processing Fee of $50 per child (to a maximum of $100 per family). This non-refundable fee is payable on an offer of an enrolment place.
 
Our school has successfully introduced the Australian National Curriculum from Prep to Year 6. We focus on improving all students’ outcomes in English, Maths and Science using 21st century teaching strategies and technologies. To accelerate learning all our classrooms have Interactive Whiteboards and students can access internet connected devices in all classrooms.
 
We recognise that our students have a full range of gifts and talents that we seek to develop. We have full uniform and high expectations on behaviour.  At our school we believe that the education of our children is a partnership involving both the home and the school.  We aim to work in a positive partnership with parents to develop every child to their full potential.
