Our school

Darra State School's teaching community is strong in implementing programs that develop English proficiency and support students through the Australian curriculum while being responsive to our students’ diverse range of learning styles and needs.

Our school also hosts the Trung Vuong Vietnamese Language School on Saturday mornings and the Chinese Language School on Sunday mornings. These schools work closely with Darra State School to provide a comprehensive, robust and culturally rich education to our learning community. Our curriculum programs are sensitive and responsive to the culturally diverse needs of our students and families.

Darra State School students excel in many academic competitions, with the University of New South Wales mathematics competition a prime example. Through our tremendous arts/drama programs our students have gained much recognition for their creative abilities, imagination and ingenuity. Many of our students’ artworks can be see throughout the local and wider Brisbane community. We also provide a dance program with qualified dance instructors to extend our students’ creative and cultural abilities through the arts.

Students, staff and families are supported by our chaplain, Mr Josh Acason, who is building strong community links with the various spiritual leaders present in our community. We support the involvement of our different cultures and their beliefs in our daily school life and in our school events.

I have been the Principal of Darra State School since 2009 and am proud to be back at my school after some time away seconded to other positions within and beyond the Metropolitan Region.
