Our school

Clifton State School

Clifton State School’s statement of purpose 'to achieve the best educational outcomes for every student' highlights our commitment to building strong partnership between teachers, students, parents and the wider community; teaching and learning practices that equip our children to shape the future, and life long learning.

Our school motto 'Success Crowns Effort' underpins our ongoing efforts to create and develop a caring and cooperative educational environment for each individual child. Such an environment is made possible by our enthusiastic, professional commitment to excellence and reflects our genuine love of and commitment to the children in our care.

The Clifton State School community believes that learning is a fundamental life skill necessary for all students to function effectively on a personal and social level in a global community. We believe that given sufficient time and support all students can learn, that students learn by doing and that literacy is the key that opens the door to all learning. We believe that committed teachers can and do make a difference.

To ensure your children participate to their maximum potential we have developed comprehensive programs that provides opportunities for your children to acquire the knowledge, skills and values necessary for today and for life in the twenty first century.
