Our staff 2019

Ensuring the overall well-being and development of all individuals is very important to us. All of our students, from Prep to Year 6, are nurtured and cared for by experienced professionals who have a genuine empathy for our students and a strong commitment to our school and the greater community.
Russell Island State School is a place where relationships matter, where caring for and knowing our students as individuals are two of our core values.  We have been very fortunate to have a great line-up of very committed, talented and skilled teachers and teacher aides for 2018. Each class has a teaching team that includes a teacher and teacher aide/s; as well as a number of other teacher and teacher aides who form our Support Team. We are also supported by auxiliary staff such as a School Chaplain, Systems Technician and Guidance Officers..
