Welcome to the Australian Primary School of the Year (2018)

Tamborine Mountain State School (Independent Public School) was awarded the prestigious Australian Education Award for Australian Primary School of the Year - 2018 (Govt). TMSS is also an award winning 'School of Excellence for the Early and Primary Years of Education' and 'Inclusive Education'. Our objective is to promote the academic, cultural, physical and social development of each child. Students are encouraged and taught to become self-motivated learners who can work independently, co-operatively and happily to gain the skills they need to make choices about their lives, now, and in the future.
 At Tamborine Mountain State School, we place an emphasis on every student’s creativity and achievement. We give students many opportunities to participate in many extra-curricular activities. Tamborine Mountain State School has a whole school focus on achievement and success in academic, sporting, arts and cultural programs, which can only be achieved by students attending school every day and our school and broader communities working with us to ensure we are continually Striving for the Highest!
TMSS is proud to be a member of the Happy School program. We value our staff and believe that the work we do is important. Staff morale and well-being have a HUGE impact on student achievement, relationships within our school and the successful implementation of change. High stress levels have a negative impact and increase staff absence. A happier staff leads to better results!

                                                    ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF COUNTRY
Tamborine Mountain State School staff would like to acknowledge the Wangerriburra people, the traditional Custodians of the land upon which our school resides. On this land they taught the children their beliefs, knowledge and culture as we seek to do the same for children of the Tamborine Mountain State School community. We pay our respect to Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge their spiritual and ongoing connection to Country.
