On behalf of the staff, students and parents of West End State School, I would like to welcome your family to our school. West End State School, established in 1875, is now an Independent Public School.
West End is one of the older schools in the Brisbane region. During its long, eventful history many philosophies and codes of conduct have been applied to stimulate and enhance learning for and by the students. These were successful, as the school has always enjoyed a high reputation.
At West End State School our vision is the pursuit of excellence and quality education in a positive and supportive atmosphere. We aim to provide a happy and safe environment where everyone is encouraged to take responsibility for his or her own behaviour.
We, at West End, believe that the best education occurs when there is a good working partnership between parent, teacher and child. If all three have common goals and aspirations then the child is most likely to be both happy and successful in his/her school life.
Kim McNamara, Principal.
