Principal's welcome

Welcome to Robina State High School! I feel very lucky to be principal of this lovely school. We have 1,600 students. They are very kind and welcome new friends from other countries. We love to study new languages, play sports like baseball, golf and football and learn about the beach and water sports. We also love to study hard and get good results to help us go to university and reach our goals.

We have the Gold Coast’s largest shopping mall and train station opposite our school. The beach is only 10 minutes away and we are also very close to famous theme parks.

We have special staff who work to make your stay very special. You are welcome to join the Robina High family.
