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 English 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.
Students, staff and families are supported by our chaplain, Miss Chloe Hoy, 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.
As the African proverb says, 'It takes a village to raise a child', this is evident in the way that Darra State School operates. Everyone is welcome, please contact the school office for further information.
