Principal's welcome


Undurba State School is a school that has successfully developed positive partnerships with our community, school and parents to develop and nurture all children in our care to "Aim for the best". Our school recognizes that for all children to succeed, our community, parents and school need to work in collaboration to develop the whole child. At Undurba our school is the learning hub of our community and we are proud to have been recognized for our excellence in education for all children with recognition as a State finalist in the Education Qld. Showcase awards for Excellence in Education in 2019.

We are a proud and strong learning community offering specialist programs including the Arts, STEAM, HPE and Health and Robotics. With state of the art media and robotics rooms offering all learners opportunities to explore a range of learning experiences and opportunities to achieve our vision "empowering every learner to reach their potential and become a successful global citizen"  

At Undurba we believe that learning is a life-long process and occurs best within a supportive, stimulating and challenging environment which develops self-esteem and recognises students' individual needs and abilities. Productive partnerships involving honest communication and constructive feedback between the home, teachers and students, are essential to quality learning outcomes.

Our school motto "Aim for the best' is evident in our strong focus on every student succeeding within a supportive framework of high expectation. Undurba State School has built a reputation as a caring, high achieving school, with excellent educational opportunities, including a quality curriculum, high behaviour standards and a commitment to continuing improvement and lifelong learning. We aim to provide our child with rich and rewarding learning experiences that will lead and support them as they grow.

Undurba State School focuses on growing the whole child, with a strong emphasis on academic achievement. Extension and enrichment opportunities, special interest clubs, as well as structured support for all learners provide the platform for all students to be successful. Explicit teaching of behaviour expectations and resilience and self-management skills, in addition to an extensive array of cultural, sporting and musical opportunities complete the Undurba experience.

I am privileged to lead a team of highly professional staff, who work diligently to provide an environment which supports each and every student to reach their full potential. We explicitly measure success and progress regularly. We have developed a reflective culture where regular data on achievements, progress of individual students are used to make continual judgements about the effectiveness of teaching, curriculum and make adjustments to learning programs.

Undurba signature programs including, ePAW (eLearning initiative), Positive Behaviour for Learning Program, Reboot, and Balanced Reading Program enhance the school experience, and improve learning outcomes and student well-being.

Our school community values kindness and respect. Staff members model these traits to students and families. We explicitly teach, expect and acknowledge students for treating each other and other school community members in the way they wish to be treated.

I look forward to welcoming your family into the Undurba family.

Take care



Leanne Matheson
Principal- Undurba State School.
