Freestone State School endeavours to provide access for all students to a curriculum that engages and challenges students. It is our mission as teacher’s to encourage and support students to grow and mature into confident, responsible and active life- long learners by establishing strong foundations in literacy and numeracy. It is our belief that skills in these areas allow access to all other curriculum areas.
We also believe that students need to be taught how to learn together and work together as part of a group where individuals are respected. Social and emotional wellbeing is as important as academic achievement. We strive to acknowledge our individuality but learn how to compromise and work together to create a learning environment where individuals are valued and feel safe.
