Our School

Established in 2016, the Griffin State School community worked in close partnership with purpose and passion to create a school that achieves the very best possible for each child by embedding practices that are truly Anchored in Excellence.
Centred at the heart of the Griffin community, a group of 18 staff, 243 learners and their families took the first steps on our journey of learning. A significant amount of work has been done by a small but dedicated group of people including staff, learners and parents. Their work has been a work of the heart and mind recognising the steadfast belief that nurturing young people with both character and competence, able to capably take their place in an ever-changing world, is our work. This belief is espoused through our school’s Values and Learning Priorities.

Values: Humanity, Integrity and Grit underpin practices and articulate a desire to nurture young people with character and determination.
Learning Priorities: Learners at Griffin will be Literate, Numerate and Curious with programs designed to develop the skills to prepare them for their futures. Curiosity and Powerful Learning provides the organisational framework for our work.
In our infancy, careful consideration has been given to ensuring highly effective, evidence-based organisational practices have been created to prepare for anticipated rapid enrolment growth. Timeless traditions have also been established that will take the Griffin community into the future.
Underlying Philosphies: At Griffin we believe in an inquiry approach to learning and aim to foster our learners’ curiosity so that they leave our school more curious about the world than when they arrived. We believe that each child can and will learn, given the right time and support and that the continued progress of each child is a shared responsibility in a genuine partnership with all members of our school community.
