Welcome to Benowa State School on Queensland's beautiful Gold Coast.
This is an amazing school, with a rich history that reflects great pride and diversity, and a school of excellence in education that prepares pathways of opportunity for all students.
This experience in education is woven into a significantly diverse and rich tapestry of multicultural backgrounds. This diversity is mapped across the globe with over 40 different languages other than English spoken as a first language.
I am truly overwhelmed by the depth and desire of our professional team of teachers and support staff to make a significant contribution to shaping the best educational environment for our students at Benowa. This strong belief in ‘lifelong learning’ shows students that learning is everybody’s business every day.
The true beauty of our school culture rests with our commitment to the wellbeing of all people as a primary purpose to shaping our future humanity. Our commitment to wellbeing is driven by this message from the World Health Organisation: 'Wellbeing is a state in which every individual realises his or her potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.'
I look forward to welcoming you to Benowa State School.
