Our community


The Adopt-a-Cop program was implemented in 1985 to build positive relationships between police and members of the school community through the voluntary appointment of Adopt-a-Cops to schools and other relevant organisations. Note: Members of the school community include students, staff, parents, carers, other interested community members.

The program is an integral part of policing and reflects a greater emphasis on police partnerships with the community.  Currently there are over 950 Adopt-a-Cops performing duties in over 1100 Queensland schools.

Tara Rolfe is the Bellevue Park State School Adopt-A-Cop, who will drop in from time to time to chat to students. Tara is a past student of Bellevue Park.​ 

 Indigenous Elders

Our class names are from an indigenous vocabulary and have a meaning that teachers will use to help form a class identity. The reason for indigenous names is to have as a part of our everyday life at school an opportunity to acknowledge the perspective of the traditional landowners.  Our department places a high level of importance on all students gaining an indigenous perspective in their learning, and for the indigenous perspective to be embedded in our school life. Our school is required to have an action plan in response to the policy Embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Perspectives, which we refer to as EATSIPs. A committee of interested teachers, parents and community members meet regularly. 

We are very lucky also to have two elders who are a part of our school community – Aunty Pat and Uncle Lindsay – who enjoy sharing their perspective with our students during our special events, such as Reconciliation Week and NAIDOC week.​
