Welcome from Deputy Principal
Yeronga State High School:
Creating a World of Opportunities …
Yeronga State High School is a strongly connected, environmentally conscious, school community that has the well-being of the child central to all learning experiences. Students will be equipped with the real world capabilities, experiences and knowledge to think creatively and critically as active participants in a global community. (Vision Statement)
Deputy Principal (Senior Secondary) - Bob Logan
Ph: (07) 3249 1400
At Yeronga State High School our school culture and curriculum is focused upon the holistic development of each student to enable them to create and access a world of opportunities.
This is embodied in our Vision above and our Latin motto Scientia ac Humanitate (Knowledge and Humanity) which we interpret as:
'creating knowledge, benefiting all'
Our Senior Secondary School is supported by a Quality team of expert staff dedicated to working with students throughout Years 11 and 12.
We believe in:
- a diverse range of quality pathways through the Senior School
- academic and career guidance for all students
- 21st Century skills for lifelong learning complemented by real life learning
- leadership opportunities for all students
Students entering the Senior phase of learning in Queensland schools elect to study a number of subjects over a set pattern and period of time, usually two years. Students at Yeronga State High School are encouraged to select subjects that they enjoy and interest them. In addition to their academic studies, the school provides a wide range of sporting and cultural opportunities.
As Deputy Principal of the Senior Secondary School, my team and I see it as our responsibility to provide numerous interactions, opportunities and programs for all students to achieve success as outlined in our Vision and motto. The links that follow are examples of these opportunities framed around our guiding values of:
Quality, Harmony and Sustainability
Quality –excellence in all that we do
Harmony – unity through tolerance and understanding
Sustainability –enduring and maintaining balance
On behalf of my team, the Dean of Students and Year Level Coordinator, I welcome you to our amazing school.
