Welcome to our Dakabin State High School family. I am very proud to serve the community of Dakabin as its principal.
Our School Vision is to be a high performing school that develops a culture of learning that will enable our students to be resilient, healthy and successful citizens in the 21st century.
Our vision commits us to the concept of excellence. We believe passionately that every single student is capable of reaching their potential. Through personal commitment to our values of Learning, Discipline and Community, we believe anyone can achieve their dreams. These values are expected to be modelled by every community member daily in their behaviour and attitude.
At Dakabin we recognise that Learning does not only occur within the classroom. Dakabin High has developed a strong reputation for the provision of high-quality educational opportunities across academic, sporting, and cultural areas. Our commitment to excellence and high expectations across the school is reflected in the variety of opportunities available to all students within and outside the classroom. We are justly proud of the extensive array of extracurricular opportunities to all of our students.
Working in partnership with students, parents, staff and the community is important to me. Our vision, is best achieved by us working together through positive, respectful and supportive relationships to develop a mindful, caring and compassionate school community. We are passionate about developing students and teachers and we model this by setting high expectations, and believing that we can achieve so much together.
Teachers influence the lives of students daily. Dakabin State High School has caring, committed and compassionate teachers who vigilantly focus on providing rich and engaging learning experiences to every student. The wellbeing of both students and staff is a daily focus.
This is a great school in which students can learn, grow and achieve. As a school, we are committed to ongoing improvement and an unrelenting focus on excellence.
I look forward to continuing to work with our Dakabin State High community to achieve great outcomes for all our student’s.
