Principal’s welcome

Welcome to Mount Cotton State School!
Welcome to Mount Cotton State School.  We are proud of our school and its wonderful reputation as an outstanding school, catering for a diverse range of students.  Established in 1876, Mount Cotton State School has been providing quality education to generations of families and enjoys strong ties with its local community.  We currently have 620 students enrolled.
Our Vision at Mount Cotton State School is
to Grow Clever, Creative and Caring Children!
Our Statement of Purpose:
Every child counts,
Every teacher counts,
Every minute counts,
Mount Cotton counts!
At Mt Cotton State School, we believe all students can succeed and hold high expectations for their learning and behaviour. We strive to provide all students with opportunities to learn through:
  • A variety of learning pathways catering for diversity
  • A safe, stimulating and supportive environment
  • Innovative and purposeful teaching practices
Central to our school’s vision is the active promotion of our 3 Rs – Respect, Responsibility and Resilience.  When modelled and reinforced by all members of our school community, they assist our students to become successful learners, confident and creative individuals, and active and informed citizens.
On behalf of Mt Cotton State School I extend a warm invitation to all members of our school community to work together with the aim of making our students’ education as inspirational and successful as we can!   We encourage parents and carers to enhance their children’s education by developing productive relationships with the school. Maintaining open and respectful communication between school and home is a key aspect.
I look forward to working with you to ensure we grow clever, creative and caring children.
Kind regards
Meagan Steward
