The curriculum at Aspley East State School is engaging and challenging, and
delivered in a supportive and caring environment. This allows each student to
develop to the utmost of his/her capabilities. Our priority is for each student
to possess the skills in literacy and numeracy and the required knowledge and
understandings to become a productive member of society, with the abilities to
adapt to change, think and reason, communicate effectively, and continue to be a
life-long learner in our ever-changing world.
The school community places particular importance on the productive
partnership that is developed between home and school and the important,
positive impact this has on each child's learning. We have introduced a Parent
Helpers’ Online Course and a series of parent information mornings on Literacy
and Numeracy to help promote learning connections between home and school.
At Aspley East we have a strong belief in ‘Reward for
Effort’ and encourage all students to become active participants in
their learning. Goal setting is one approach used to foster students in making
connections between their own personal choices for learning and the end results.
