Much of our success is attributable to our:
We are very fortunate to have a strong family feel and a supportive community, and a dedicated, experienced and caring staff. Our staff are constantly striving to enhance their teaching skills and knowledge, to deliver the most engaging, quality curriculum possible.
Within the Far North Region of State Schools, Miallo is seen as a leading school in terms of explicit instruction pedagogy and school improvement. Our school has presented at conferences in both our Region and Central Queensland, and we regularly welcome teachers and Principals into the school to observe quality explicit teaching. Video footage our some of our teachers is also used across the Region to assist other schools in their journey of explicit teaching.
We enjoy a well-resourced school and our facilities include six classrooms, a purpose-built Prep building, Resource Centre, Multipurpose Hall, tuckshop, computer lab, music room, oval, tennis court, cricket pitch and net, volleyball court, sandpit and two playgrounds. Our facilities allow all students the opportunity to access learning opportunities to enable them to reach their full potential.
Information Communication Technology is integrated into units of work and the day to day teaching for staff. All classrooms are fitted with interactive whiteboards, data projector, teacher’s laptop, students’ computers and a digital camera in their rooms.
A computer lab outfitted with a data projector, printer and digital microscopes is also heavily utilised by students.
