Principal’s welcome


Welcome to our wonderful school. We pride ourselves on delivering an excellent curriculum and have a rigorous learning environment that has at its core being safe, tolerant, respectful and inclusive. 

Mandy RankinWe are dedicated to providing our students with the support they require to reach their full potential.  Our school is staffed with a comprehensive network of teacher aides and specialist support teachers, enabling our teachers to provide a differentiated curriculum supporting the individual needs of each of our students.

Our school has developed comprehensive processes to provide academic and non-academic support to address individual student needs. We have a full-time Guidance officer, Sherie Leslie, who provides support for our students and families and links with community groups and support providers.  The school is dedicated to supporting and encouraging students to develop their social/emotional, behavioural and academic potential through a variety of dynamic programs, including early identification and proactive intervention programs, mentoring programs and friendship groups. The school employs a Speech-Language Pathologist two days per week who provides targeted programs for our students with a specific focus on improving outcomes for students in the early years.

We prioritise the development of strong and productive partnerships between staff members, students, parents and the community and strongly encourage our parents to become partners in their child’s education.  We host several major community events each year to celebrate the wonderful achievements of our students.

We use our fabulous facilities to provide a range of opportunities for students. We provide structured lunchtime sport and dancing every break in our Sports Stadium and students also love participating in our B-Fit program which is offered before or after school several days a week. Our library is open at lunchtimes to enable computer access, borrowing, research as well as some fun puzzles and games to ensure all students have a quiet, cool alternative.

Our Active After School Sport program is free and runs two afternoons a week. We also offer a range of sporting opportunities within the school including carnivals and interschool sport. All students participate in a weekly physical education program with a specialist teacher starting right from Prep, and many take advantage of a range of specialist coaching sessions before and after school.

We provide a rich cultural program with our students having the opportunity to participate in our instrumental program (woodwind, strings, brass and percussion), choirs and signing choirs and a range of instrumental ensembles.  Our annual Twilight concert is a highlight, showcasing the talent across the school.

Our school offers AUSLAN (Australian Sign Language) as the LOTE program from Prep to Year 6. Participation in this program equips our students with the skills to communicate in AUSLAN and develop a deep understanding of Deaf culture and Deaf history.   

Students at Berserker are provided with the opportunity to work together and use creative problem solving skills through our involvement in the annual OPTI-minds event. In 2017 our team placed first in their category in the Regional finals and were invited to participate in the State finals in Brisbane. 

Our school has a strong commitment to developing student skills in technology with students provided with a range of learning opportunities including designing and building LEGO Robotics and creating 3D art work with the 3D printer in our Innovation Centre.  

We are a school that prides itself on our safe, caring environment. We have high expectations of our students and welcome new enrolments. Our highly accomplished and dedicated leadership team, teaching and non-teaching staff welcome the opportunity to work with you and your family. We are incredibly proud of our great school and the opportunities we provide for our students.
