Established in 1871, Brookfield State School has served an area that has seen growth from a timber, gold mining, farming and small crop production district to a thriving semi-rural and suburban residential area supporting a population of professional and self-employed workers.
Our school is a central focus in the beautiful Brookfield community. We provide high quality, public education to all children. We have a strong and positive relationship with the Brookfield Recreation Reserve Trust, the Brookfield Show Society, Moggill Creek Catchment Group, Pullenvale Environmental Education Centre, Kenmore State High School, Brisbane City Council, local businesses and local sporting groups.
We believe it is important to work in a way which reflects the values of the community and the people employed at Brookfield State School.
Everything we do is student-focused. We strive to operate in partnership with families and the community and prepare students for future learning and life experiences. We recognise that literacy and numeracy are basic and essential skills for learning. We deliver the Australian Curriculum and the Key Learning Areas as developed by the Queensland Studies Authority.
We differentiate teaching and learning to cater for the range of abilities in our students. Our curriculum is underpinned by our belief in developing each child as a lifelong learner who is:
a knowledgeable person with deep understanding
a complex thinker
a creative person
an active investigator
an effective communicator
a participant in an independent world
a reflective and self-directed learner.
Brookfield State School is committed to providing a safe, respectful and disciplined learning environment for students and staff, where students have opportunities to engage in quality learning environments and acquire values supportive of their lifelong learning.
