Principal's welcome

Welcome to Bluewater State School. Our school prides itself on having a small school atmosphere where students can feel safe and supported to rise to their potential.

Explicit classroom teaching is supported by specialist teachers for Languages (Japanese), The Arts and Health and Physical Education. There are many opportunities for students to showcase their special talents as we actively promote participation in a range of academic, sporting and cultural events.

The 'Bluewater Way' incorporates a love of the environment and a desire to ensure sustainability of resources into the future. Students take great pride in developing and maintaining garden beds around the school. 

Our school has a strong focus on Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and our students and teachers have access to fully wireless, networked classrooms, a computer lab, iPads, laptops and state-of-the-art resources such as drones and 3D printers.

Bluewater SS students participate in regular inter-house and interschool sports competitions and carnivals. We are a SunSmart school so students must ensure they have a bucket hat to access the extensive outdoor playground options, including three adventure playgrounds and a flying fox. Instrumental music is also offered to students, with expert teaching available in strings, brass, percussion and woodwind.

There is a strong student leadership program at Bluewater SS which gives our students in Years 5 and 6 the opportunity to develop life-long skills and confidence in influencing others and contributing to society in a thoughtful and productive way. Transition to secondary school programs are also offered for Year 6 students.

We are a 'Positive Behaviour for Learning' school. The whole school community takes ownership in clearly stating and reinforcing the positive and caring behaviours we want our students to demonstrate at all times in the classroom and playground.

Parents and community members are very welcome as classroom volunteers and the Parents and Citizens Association is active and committed. The P&C meet regularly on the second Tuesday evening of each month at 6.30pm in the library. There are a wide variety of events held each year to encourage and celebrate parent and community engagement.

Before and after school hours care is available on the school site through a partnership with the Police Citizens Youth Club (PCYC). Vacation care programs are also offered.

The Bluewater C&K is also located on site at Bluewater SS. Transition to prep programs are offered for in-catchment students during Semester 2 each year.

We look forward to including you in our wonderful school community and extend an invitation to visit our school site and talk with our friendly staff. Please also feel free to explore our school website and Facebook page and contact us if you need any further information.  We look forward to meeting you and your family in the near future.

Warm regards,

Michelle Donn
