Pallara State School

Welcome to our great community school which also happens to be one of the newest IPS (Independent Public School) and PPP (Private, Public, Partnership) schools in the state.


Our school will implement the National Australian Curriculum in the subject areas of English, maths and science with a focus on differentiation for all students so that learning needs are best met.

We recognise that Pallara has been a close and supportive community for a long period of time spanning back beyond 1959 when the first school was established in this suburb.
As we move together into the future, we maintain focus on having a supportive community feel where parents and teachers work together so that the best interests of students can be catered for.
Our school has high expectations on student behaviour and takes pride in providing a supportive and nurturing climate where every child can feel that they belong and can achieve success.
Statement of purpose: To ensure that every day, in every classroom, every student is  learning and achieving.
We stand by our school rules of:
  • Be safe
  • Be respectful
  • Be caring and considerate
  • Be responsible 
  • Be your best
My staff and I are committed to providing a quality education for our students; and we are proud to be part of a strong public education system.
Our school fosters the well-being and personal development of each student as we work alongside our parents and carers to prepare our youth for the challenges of the future. 
We understand the importance of home-school partnerships in helping us ensure achievements of the best possible social and academic outcomes for our students.  We value and encourage open and effective communication.
We hope your association with our school will be a very positive one and that you will celebrate with us the many achievements of our students and staff. ​​​​Working together we can achieve wonderful outcomes for our students.
Mark Johnstone
Principal​ ​
