Theodore State School has a long and proud tradition of service and the provision of educational excellence to our community.
The teaching staff is dedicated, hard-working and professional, and fully committed to the education of our students. Along with our support staff team, they do an excellent job in supporting the students of our school so that each has the opportunity to learn to the best of their ability.
It is our belief that education is a partnership between the school (students & staff), parents and the local community.
To that end, we offer a strong culture of support that allows students to grow and develop in a safe and caring environment. It is our aim to equip our students with the knowledge, skills and positive attitudes that will allow them to fully participate as active Australian citizens.
Our curriculum is varied and challenging and we encourage the participation of parents, carers and community members across academic, cultural and sporting activities.
Our students benefit from our strong and active P&C Association which provides both human and material resources to support all our students across a wide range of activities.
