It is my great pleasure to welcome you to 2019 at Southport State School, a year to which the staff of Southport are greatly looking forward and one that is bursting with promise. I hope the Christmas break was everything you hoped it would be and that you are now looking forward to all that 2019 might bring.
The Class of 2018 did us proud with their academic, community, cultural and sporting achievements. Most importantly I’m confident that all of our graduating students will value add to the school and community they are connected with. Ultimately this is what their hard work has all been about.
To those of you who are joining Southport for the first time, allow me to extend to you the hand of friendship as you become a member of a community committed to mutual support, respect and trust. We remain firmly convinced that the best way we can care and educate your children is in partnership with you, the parents, and we look forward to the many successes that will surely flow from our partnership in the coming years.
