Gympie East State School has a proud environmental tradition as a "Green and Healthy School'. We have received several awards for our innovation in this area and are continually looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint. Our Environmental and Gardening Program plays a major role in our school culture. Every student spends at least one session a week working in our garden, forest school or engaging with the environment.
This is complemented by our redesigned curriculum approach that allows students to build on their knowledge each term from Prep to Year 6. This sequential approach ensures all students are working progressively towards higher learning outcomes.
Information and Communication Technologies are an increasingly important aspect of the global student and all students have access to up-to-date infrastructure and learning opportunities in our STEAM Program, whether it be coding, designing or being interactive in the classroom our students have every opportunity to prepare for their future.
This includes high levels of social responsibility as well as ensuring quality academic growth. To this end we have high behaviour expectations backed by our Gympie East Responsible Behaviour Plan, our students know this as "The East Way".
At Gympie East we believe strongly in developing the whole student. East students and staff live by our school motto "Nothing Without Endeavour" and coupled with our school vision of "What Ever it Takes" every student succeeds in creating their success, we are driven to provide our students with the best possible foundation to create their own bright future.
