Principal’s welcome

Dear Parent / Carer,

On behalf of the staff, students and parents of Tingalpa State School, I would like to welcome your family to our school. The staff of Tingalpa State School are committed to providing a quality education for our students and are proud to be part of a strong public education system.

Tingalpa State School is located in the Brisbane Metropolitan region, 12km east of the CBD. We are co-educational and cater for the educational needs of children from Prep to Year 6. Our focus is on providing an excellent teaching and learning environment to allow children to achieve academic success and develop positive social and emotional skills. We provide a supportive and caring environment which helps to motivate children to 'Strive to Excel' in all that they do. 

With just over 400 students, our school shares a sense of family and allows us to develop strong partnerships with parents and carers. Together we can provide children with the best foundations for their future.

Established in 1873, Tingalpa State School has a proud history within its community and continues to hold a positive, caring reputation. Our dedicated staff develop challenging and rigorous learning opportunities to meet the needs of all children in a modern learning environment.

In 2015, we introduced a French Bilingual Program at the school. This is an exciting learning program that Tingalpa State School is proud to be a part of. Please click on the link to access further information on the French Bilingual Program.

At Tingalpa State School we believe that the best education occurs when there is a good working partnership between parent, teacher and child. If all three have common goals and aspirations then the child is most likely to be both happy and successful in their school life.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in our school.
