Welcome to our school. Samford State School was opened in 1872 and remained relatively small until the past twenty years saw a steady increase in families moving into the area. Currently there are 824 children enrolled in our school. While our school can be considered a large school by enrolment, our school is enveloped within a wonderfully close knit community and that warm country school feel endures still today.
The school has adopted the 'You Can Do It' program as a means of developing the important foundation attributes of Organisation, Persistence, Confidence, Getting Along and Resilience. This program plays an important role in daily life at the school.
There is a strong sense of pride at Samford State School; pride in the magnificent grounds, in the very high academic achievements of the children, in the children’s appearance and conduct, the teaching standards, the facilities and the general resources. We hope that you and your children will look back on your years at Samford with pride too, and fond memories of hard work, rewarding experiences and life-long friendships.
I value the partnerships we make with parents and look forward to working with you to ensure your child develops the skills they need to successfully participate in an ever growing and complex world.
