Junior school

Welcome to Junior Secondary at Mabel Park State High School.


Our vision for Junior Secondary is: Every junior secondary student engaged, experiencing success and equipped for future pathways.

In developing our Junior Secondary school we have engaged with the six guiding principles:

Distinct identity

We have established a Junior Secondary precinct with core teachers and home rooms and specific events.

Quality teaching

Teachers working with students in the Junior Secondary years have been specifically selected and given Professional Development specific to adolescent learners.

Student wellbeing

We will meet the social and emotional needs of Junior Secondary students with a strong focus on pastoral care.

Parent and community involvement

We want parents to stay connected with their students' learning when they enter high school. Parent involvement in assemblies, special events, award ceremonies and leadership presentations will be welcomed and we are working on ways to improve communication.


Leadership roles for students in Junior Secondary students are in place. Dedicated teachers experienced with teaching young adolescents will lead Junior Secondary supported by a dedicated JS Dean of Students, JS Head of Department and JS Deputy Principal.

Local decision-making

We have consulted with the local community and seeking to engage further with the community in refining our Junior Secondary school.
