back and congratulations to all of our senior students, for choosing to
continue their education pathway through to the end of Year 12 and the
achievement of their Queensland
Certificate of Education (QCE).
Parents and carers often ask how they can best support their child
through Senior Schooling. In my
experience, the best form of support is interest. Remember to make time to ask your child what
they have been doing in class, or to show you their classwork for a subject and
then to engage in conversation about their classwork/learning at school. Not only will this show you that your child
is engaging in their learning at school, it also deepens their understanding of
the topics they are learning.
would like to share with students, parents and carers some of the resources
that are available to students and their families to help guide and support all
students through their senior schooling journey.
the school we have a strong support network for all senior students. It is important that if your child has
concerns regarding their senior schooling, or life in general, that they start
conversations – with you at home and/or with any of the staff at school. Following notification, the school’s student
support network will then connect your child with the most appropriate staff
member or organisation to help.
The school website is an important resource everyone is familiar with, as it contains links to
information and resources related to Senior Schooling.
encourage all families and community to make time to also explore the Senior Schooling
information provided through the Queensland
Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) so as to become more familiar
with the processes and language involved in senior schooling in Queensland.
resource links for all students in Year 12
All Year 12 students should be registered for their
learning account with the QCAAs StudentConnect website. Student Connect gives Year 12 students access
to their learning account and results, as well as information on education,
training and career pathways.
Resource links for all students in Years 10 and 11
Detailed information and supporting links are
available through the QCAA on the Information for school communities’ webpage.
This webpage provides additional links to the
student’s resources in the myQCE website. This is the gateway
to the new QCE system for Year 10 and 11 students and will be a valuable tool
throughout their senior schooling. Other
resources and important links are provided on this webpage.
the year, a lot of additional information is forwarded to the school in
relation to careers, tertiary pathways, competitions, scholarships and
traineeships and apprenticeship information.
The information is provided to all students through school communication
channels including email, newsletter, parades and notices.
students or parents have any concerns or questions regarding senior schooling
please do not hesitate to contact me.
