Welcome to the Cannon Hill State School website and welcome to our school.
At Cannon Hill State School we love learning. Our school offers students opportunities to develop as thinking, active citizens of our globalised world. We believe that our students are very capable young people, competent at observing the world they live in and asking insightful questions about what they observe.
Our school is strongly influenced by the world leading work of the educators in 'Reggio Emilia', Northern Italy. We encourage our students’ full development with a balanced program of literacy, numeracy, physical development, and the arts, making wise use of computer and other technologies. Their curiosity and inquiring minds apply well to the sciences and our 'Kitchen Garden Program' encourages students to learn about healthy lifestyles in a real-world context encourages students to learn about healthy lifestyles in a real-world context.
Our parents are active partners in our work together of teaching their children. We respect our proud history of achievers at Cannon Hill State School while looking to the needs of future citizens of our complex world. To prepare our students for this world, we actively teach them to be thinkers about big and enduring ideas through our Philosophy program and to know themselves as learners, with their personal strengths and goals, as we teach students how to be effective learners in the 'Building Learning Power' program.
Goal setting is central to our programs with each student being supported to develop their personal learning plans in Literacy and Numeracy. We see that feedback on leaning progress is essential to effective student progress.
Our music program is outstanding with all students learning to both perform and compose music. Physical education has long been a key part of the school program with many national and international sporting identities as past students of the school. Every child from prep up learns Italian as a second language.
We believe that the environment is the third teacher and hence our focus on a beautiful and stimulating environment both indoor and outdoor.
Welcome to our school!
