History

PublishingPageContent


​​​​​​Robina State High School opened in January 1996 with an enrolment of approximately 350 Year 8 students. The official opening of the school took place several months later on July 16. Our school quickly developed a reputation for innovative curriculum and a commitment to care.

Our school motto of “Believe and Succeed” and our guiding principles of PROMOTE - Pride, Respect, Ownership, Manners, Opportunities, Teamwork and Excellence were established during the foundation year as were the school houses of Franklin, Hinze, Gooding and Laver.

Our logo contains a striking image of a Kingfisher and surrounding wetlands which were designed to reflect the original school site. The area has changed significantly since that time, now boasting Robina Town Centre, a thriving hospital and medical Centre, a football stadium and key transport hub on the Gold Coast.

Our school grew steadily and in 1999 we introduced our senior schooling program which features flexible delivery over 4 contact days for students in years 11 and 12. In 2000, we graduated our first senior cohort. In 2015, we welcomed Year 7s to Robina State High School for the first time.

We are proud of our traditions and the many successful young people who have graduated from Robina State High and moved into prosperous careers. Many of our alumni still connect with the school in various ways including through avidly following our Facebook page.

Throughout the years, our school motto has grown into "Stronger Together" and our school values of "Responsible, Respecftul, Resilient and Ready To Learn".
