I am very pleased to welcome you to Algester State School. Our school has a strong heritage within the community and it was the first school in the suburb and opened in 1971. From humble beginnings it has grown to a large primary school catering for Prep-Year 6 with approximately 1000 students. Despite our size, we still have a wonderful nurturing culture that cares about our children and their families. We are immensely proud of the quality education that we provide and our outstanding academic, artistic and sporting achievements.
Our curriculum is on the cutting edge of development as we strive to adapt the Australian Curriculum for digital technologies and futures thinking. We have been recognised by Apple Education as an Apple Distinguished School for our accomplishments in innovative and creative teaching and learning using digital platforms.
I have had the privilege of leading the school now for over 5 years and I am so proud of the work we have undertaken and its results for our students and families. I invite you to enrol at our school and join us on the exciting journey of education into the 21st Century.
