Welcome to the Crestmead State School website.
We are very proud of our school, and sincerely hope you have a valuable and rewarding association with the Crestmead State School community. We are a very large and popular school so enrolment places are always filling fast.
At Crestmead State School, we work in partnership with parents, carers and family members to teach and help every child, every day to be their best. Research has found that parental involvement in learning, particularly parent aspirations for their child’s learning, has an above average effect on student learning progress. (Hattie, 2010).
We have high expectations in all aspects of uniform, behaviour and academic progression. We believe in fair, firm and consistent discipline that ensures that the teaching and learning process is not compromised. In return, we ask that students identify themselves by their uniform and positive behaviour as proud students of Crestmead State School. Our school vision is:
Excellence ~ Positivity ~ Community
We are all learning and achieving
The school was established in 1984 and continues to be one of the largest primary schools in Queensland with a population of over 1200 students. Around 36 different cultural groups are currently represented at the school.
All classrooms are air-conditioned and have interactive whiteboards/data projectors. The school has a hall, fully equipped with multimedia, providing the school with a magnificent venue for assemblies, performances and events. With an ever growing increase in student numbers, the school received 6 demountable buildings in 2016, which provided an extra seven air-conditioned classrooms. A new two-storey building, ‘The Crestmead Contempo’, was opened in 2018. It has eight full-size classrooms, four on each floor, a kitchen and number of other learning areas for small groups.
