Staff at Hermit Park State School have been involved in Collegial Coaching since the middle of 2013. During this time we have completed a staggering 544 observation and feedback sessions. This is a testament to the professionalism and commitment of the educators who teach our children. Our model has also been shared with visiting teams from other regions in Queensland.
Hermit Park State School prides itself on its tradition, the reputation of our school for pursuing the highest standards of behaviour, and in our excellence in academic, environmental, sporting and music programs. My staff and I look forward to working alongside you as we share in the educational journey and growth of our wonderful Hermit Park State School students.
