Christ The King Primary School is a small Catholic School located only minutes away from the bay in Brisbane's Deception Bay area. The leafy green, bayside surrounds and gardens of the school are the perfect environment to support the students in learning about sustainability and stewardship for the Earth as well as provide fertile ground for academic and real world learning.
As a small school with just over two hundred and fifty students, we are a vibrant community and pride ourselves on truly knowing our students and families. In 2017 our school consists of twelve classes and this year we look forward to continuing our building program to support our growing community.
Our staff of dedicated teachers and school officers provide vigorous and engaging teaching and learning activities to ensure all children have the opportunity to reach their potential. Our teaching and learning vision, jointly constructed by staff and parents encompasses all this in the simple phrase, "Side by side we are brave, empowered and spirited learners."
At Christ the King students are immersed in all the learning areas of the Australian Curriculum through a combination of explicit teaching and inquiry learning. Students and teachers use co-constructed learning intentions, success criteria and collective data to drive student achievement of their identified learning goals.

In addition to the regular curriculum offerings students have 1-hour specialist lessons in Physical Education and The Arts (Drama, Dance, Visual Arts, Music, Media Arts).
