The new Ripley Valley State School is based in the Providence Estate at South Ripley with approximately 550 students from Prep to Year 6. The school will cater to a diverse community made up of young and older families from varying backgrounds and cultures.
Ripley Valley State School has three strong and vibrant histories; Indigenous, Farming and Mining.
Each of these has been represented in the school uniform and logo. The colour of the brush cherry represents the Indigenous culture, green our farming and black our mining histories. The blue represents the sky which has been common across all histories, blending into navy representing our links with Ripley Valley State Secondary College.
Our logo shows how an individual’s actions can have a large impact creating a ripple effect. The ripple effect can be seen across the front and back of the school uniform and symbolises the school’s hopes to have a strong and positive impact on the future of our students.
The School Motto – Empowering Future Excellence reminds us to engage students as advocates for their own learning. The school will empower them to aim and achieve excellence now and into the future.
