Teaching and Learning at Petrie Terrace State School

Teaching and Learning Philosophy

At Petrie Terrace State School we are proud of our reputation for progressive and innovative educational programs as well as our passionate, committed and expert teaching staff.

Our Teaching and Learning Framework is a snapshot of the art and science of teaching that occurs everyday, in every classroom in every teachable moment. This framework is based on a commitment to:

  • Establishing Learning and Thinking Routines
  • Explicit Instruction of New Content
  • Relationships and High Expectations

At Petrie Terrace State School, we believe that deep knowledge of every student is necessary to set aspirational yet achievable learning goals.  Similarly, deep knowledge of the curriculum and the differing ways in which students will engage and learn is necessary for optimal learning. 

Our teachers meet regularly as collegial teams to analyse student progress profiles, set targets and plan individual programs for students.  This occurs for every student, every term.

Our understanding of learners is based on the latest educational research and evidence based practices for improving student learning and engagement.

We are a learning community committed to educational best practice for the benefit of every student.
