Principal's welcome

Smiling, laughing, happy, enthusiastic and engaged children eagerly going about their school day – that is what you will find when you walk through the gates at Coolnwynpin State School. Hidden back off Ney Road you will find a tranquil and welcoming bushland setting that is home to Coolnwynpin State School.  Many consider this to be the best kept secret in Capalaba.

Our approach at Coolnwynpin is underpinned by an absolute belief that every student who walks through our gates is special, that they have their own unique qualities, strengths and personal experiences to share. At the forefront of our endeavours we strive to ensure every child feels cared for and important each and every day. 

At Coolnwynpin State School your child will not be lost in the crowd, we are a small school with a big heart. Each child’s pursuit for academic excellence will be supported and nurtured through personalised goal setting. We understand that you want to be part of your child’s education and for this reason we encourage parental support and involvement at every step of the journey. 

Our school is well renowned for its inclusive education practices and from this the values of tolerance, compassion, diligence and social responsibility are born. We work hand in hand with parents and community organisations to develop well balanced individuals. Individuals, who are respectful, caring, well educated, cultured, physically active and socially responsible.  

I encourage you to make a time to meet with us to discuss your child’s future enrolment at our school. I look forward to seeing your child join the many that climb to success at Coolnwynpin State School.

Warm Regards

Mick Lawrance
