‘Good to Great’


A major focus at Toogoolawah SHS is our belief in maximising the potential of each of our students. To that end, in our subjects, as well as maintaining high expectations, we provide extension opportunities where selected students work with extended curriculum to be challenged outside their regular year level content.


At Toogoolawah SHS we also value

  • The worth of every individual
  • The pursuit of excellence
  • The desire to learn
  • The spirit of co-operation
  • High ethical and moral behaviour
  • Sincere effort
  • Equality of opportunity

Within a positive, caring learning environment, we believe each student has the opportunity to:

  • Enjoy learning
  • Develop mental and physical abilities to the fullest
  • Develop and maintain self-esteem
  • Develop an inquiring mind
  • Learn to respect the rights and opinions of others
  • Contribute to the growth and development of the school community and society
  • Prepare for vocational pursuits and lifelong learning

Principles reflected in our supportive school environment:

  • A consistent approach by the whole school community is required to develop a Supportive School Environment
  • Appropriate behaviour is expected from all students
  • The school has in place a Behaviour Management Policy which provides support for all students to allow them to achieve in a Supportive School Environment
  • Our school environment can positively influence students’ behaviour and performance
  • A proactive approach is preferable to a reactive approach
  • Encouraging appropriate behaviour is better than managing misbehaviour
  • Members of the school community relate to one another with mutual respect
