About Ushttp://www.stmarksinala.qld.edu.au/about-usAbout Us<div><img width="321" height="479" class="ms-rtePosition-2" alt="IMG_3951 (Small).JPG" src="/about-us/PublishingImages/IMG_3951%20(Small).JPG" style="height:223px;width:148px;margin:5px;" />St Mark's is a vibrant Catholic Primary School learning community, within the St Mark’s Parish, that is steeped in the Mercy charism and engages children from many cultural backgrounds.  Our school vision, <em>Building Success Together</em>, is clear and our efforts unified to meet the needs of our children and have them reach their potential.  Our school has increased in size from 435 students in 2008 to 509 in 2014.  We have traditionally operated a double stream school from Prep to Year 6 with a regular multi-age class within the school and in 2014 a third class in Prep, Year 1 and 2.  We stand proudly behind our motto - "Clearly and Boldly".</div> <div><br></div> <div>St Mark’s School has a proud tradition of ministry to children and families from lower socio-economic groups. It is a designated National Partnership school for low socio-economic schools.  The injection of Commonwealth funding is an exciting prospect whereby the whole school community will benefit from up-skilled teachers, the best programmes and the resources to make it happen.  </div> <div> </div> <div><img width="720" height="479" class="ms-rtePosition-1" alt="StMark's_051 (Small).JPG" src="/about-us/PublishingImages/StMark%27s_051%20(Small).JPG" style="height:186px;width:279px;margin:5px;" />St Mark’s School is also proud to welcome families from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds. (In 2012 the student population from an ESL background was 82%.  The breakup of cultural heritage being Vietnamese 54%, Pacific Islander 18%, Anglo Saxon 10%, African 7%, Filipino 4%, Indigenous 3%, Spanish 2% and other 2% ). We believe this adds to the richness of our school community and provides our students with outstanding opportunities to develop and practise tolerance and inclusion.  Our parents, too, value and are proud to acknowledge their cultural background.  An increased acknowledgement of the indigenous heritage amongst our community has led to funding to support planned programs and resources.</div> <div>The parent community at St Mark’s is supportive, committed to their children’s education (94% student attendance rate in 2013) and growing in their enthusiasm to be engaged in the life of the school. The teaching team is experienced, well qualified, and very dedicated to the students in their care but we are constantly aware that we are life-long learners so we have engaged many up-skilling initiatives.  The staff is structured into Learning Teams and Committees to address contemporary educational issues.</div> <div> </div> <div><img width="721" height="481" class="ms-rtePosition-2" alt="StMark's_104 (Small).JPG" src="/about-us/PublishingImages/APRE%20sacred%20space.JPG" style="height:190px;width:284px;margin:5px;" />Emerging from our history is a vibrant Catholic community where we strive to make Christ real each day for each person; where values are overt and based on the person of Jesus; where people live, learn and grow in harmony; where learning is valued and children are central to everything we do. A proactive move which we have made in this direction includes providing the APRE an extra-release day per week to work with the community on "Kids Matter", cultural and community based events as well as student protection initiatives.</div>
