Teaching and learning

Our goal for learners at Rochedale South State School is to equip all students with the knowledge and competencies needed for future success. This means preparing them for a world of change. We believe that learners will need to be:

  • literate and numerate
  • knowledgeable about the world around them
  • effective communicators
  • able to apply complex thinking strategies to solve problems and make decisions
  • creative and enterprising
  • able to actively investigate issues by gathering and analysing information
  • able to work and live constructively and harmoniously with others
  • self-directed and reflective.

Therefore, while our curriculum at our school focuses on exploring ways in which we can challenge our students intellectually, we are firmly committed to the development of life skills, including building social and emotional resilience, personal development, self-management and citizenship skills.

The development of these skills is scaffolded through quality, engaging learning episodes structured through our Learning to Live Together (LTLT) program, which is designed in response to the needs of our students. Programming for LTLT is planned and monitored by the Learning to Live Together team which meets regularly to ensure consistency and relevance across the school. 

As part of an initiative to improve student learning in Queensland state schools, Teaching and Learning Audits are conducted in every Queensland state school to provide quality feedback on how the school is performing and to inform school planning processes.
