The Premier has announced that from Monday 11 May, 2020, students in Year 11 and Year 12 will be able to return to their school for regular scheduled lessons. Please know that we were all made aware of this decision via the media at the same time so we do appreciate your patience in waiting for our communications.
Years 11 and 12
Year 11 and 12 students will attend their regular timetabled lessons and in most instances will be with their regular teachers. We currently have a number of teachers that are absent and vulnerable workers and we believe those teachers, who are often specialist teachers, are best placed to continue to teach their students. They know their students, the content and the assessment they are working towards. The lessons of those absent teachers will happen in an online format where the teacher is available during the scheduled lessons. We are working towards these teachers delivering lessons in a live, online format.
Returning to Timetabled Classes for Year 11 & 12.
- Regular school times and timetable in operation
- Students attend all lessons in their timetabled classroom
- Priority face-to-face teaching
- ‘Online’ (email or face-to-face) with teacher in real time when teacher is working from home
The following Year 11/12 classes are scheduled as ‘online’:
|Line 1||Line 2||Line 3||Line 4||Line 5||Line 6|
We understand that people are still concerned about the threat of COVID-19 for their families and that you might choose to keep your Year 11/12 child at home. Students will be counted as attending school if a Parent/Caregiver of a year 11 and/or 12 student chooses to keep them at home and participate in learning at home.
It is very important to note that the Department of Education advises … “the classroom teacher is not responsible for providing an alternative home-based learning program for students in Year 11 or Year 12 where parents elect to keep these students at home.” Year 11&12 students learning at home are required to access the Department of Education Senior School Materials on the learning@home website (qld.gov.au/learningathome).
- Please note that the school canteen and uniform shop open again on Monday May 11.
On Monday 11 May at 8:40am, all Year 11/12 students report to House areas for compulsory House Group morning roll mark as follows:
|Florey V Block||Hinkler I Block ||Hollows C/D/E Block||Bandler B Block|
