Principal’s welcome


Welcome to the Deception Bay State High School website and to all families and other members of this wonderful school’s community. We intend to be the school of choice for our local families. 

At Deception Bay State High School it is our aim to provide all students with a learning environment where they can achieve their best across the academic, cultural, citizenship and sporting areas.  To achieve this it is essential that we establish strong and supportive partnerships between students, staff, parents/caregivers and the wider community.  These partnerships allow us to provide the best possible learning environment, one which is supportive for all students, and where students can gain the skills necessary to be successful members of our modern society.

In consultation with our school community we have identified four values that underpin student learning and all interaction within our school community.  These values: belonging, integrity, aspiration and persistence ensure that all our students are valued, feel safe at school and can learn in an environment that is supportive, challenging and recognises individual differences.

We respect each other and our right to have an excellent teaching and learning environment utilising the whole school pedagogical framework, Dimensions of Learning. We take responsibility for our own learning and adopt Growth Mindset thinking in all we do. 

I believe that high attendance and effective communication is key to achieving the best outcomes for our students.

Deception Bay High fosters high expectations for attendance as “Every day counts”. Research shows that high attendance is associated with high achievement. We also believe in a disciplined safe environment where students wear the school uniform with pride.

At Deception Bay High we endeavour to communicate with families on a regular basis so please ensure your contact details are up to date. The school newsletter is published 3 times per semester and is available from our school website or Skool Bag app. Additionally, we actively communicate via our FaceBook page. Please follow us on Facebook and celebrate our successes across the academic year.

I look forward to being a part of your child’s journey to achieving their full potential and creating cherished memories along the way.
