Principal’s welcome

The Golden Beach State School community provides a unique education for children from Prep to Year 6. Through our ongoing dedication and commitment to excellence in academics, the arts, and sport, we strive to promote excellence in every student.

We are committed to fostering a community of learners, and to providing an academic curriculum that develops a broad knowledge base, while promoting the skills of critical and creative thinking. We seek to do this within a challenging and supportive environment, which develops individuals as both independent and collaborative learners.  Our efforts are supported by an exceptionally talented staff who interact closely with students and by a strong partnerships between the school and our families.

Our academic program is complemented and supported by a wide range of sporting, recreational and cultural activities. As a school devoted to learning, we are constantly reviewing and developing our programs, practices and facilities.

Our challenge is to blend judiciously the best of our traditions with innovation. We look to the future of the school and our students with great excitement. The choices you make regarding your child's education are undoubtedly among the most important you will ever make.  We look forward to welcoming your child to this community - so that they can share in that excitement of learning, and play an active role in shaping their own future and that of our world.

I encourage all parents and community members to communicate with me. I can be reached at and will respond to you as promptly as possible.


Mr Greg Ferdinands
