Labrador boasts an Intensive English Centre (IEC) where children who come to Australia with limited English speaking skills receive an Intensive English Program. This service is available for students in Year 1 to Year 6.
This classroom has a wide range of nationalities represented and the focus is on working with the children to provide the necessary skills in spoken and written English to then fully integrate in a mainstream classroom.
The curriculum at Labrador State School is a key to students seeing themselves as learners who can develop the skills and knowledge they need, who can work across cultures and who persevere to achieve success.
Education has the power to change lives, so Labrador State School makes a vital contribution to students' future well-being and prosperity, as well as to the present and future community of the Gold Coast.
Labrador State School provides students with an extensive education in all key learning areas.
It is the role of our school to equip students with the capabilities they will need to contribute to a united society, a strong economy and a healthy environment. Educated and informed citizens who can apply their skills and knowledge in innovative and creative ways will allow us to meet the social, economic and environmental challenges of the future.
As a society we need learners who actively seek to understand complex issues, critically evaluate and sort information, and are able to creatively apply what they have learned to new situations, build expertise and design solutions. Curiosity about the world and confidence in facing the future will help today’s students deal with complex social circumstances and be part of a fast-evolving global economy where digital technologies shape work and private lives.
