Our students are provided with the opportunity to participate in a number of competitions at a local, state and national level. These competitions provide an opportunity for students to demonstrate their skills in a range of key curriculum areas including Mathematics, Science, Technology and Languages. Students participating in these activities are benchmarked against students from across the region, state and national arena.
The provision of field services is an important part of the operation of our school. These activities aim to provide social contact, learning support and general access to a range of cultural and educational experiences for our students. They also provide important opportunities for teachers to work with students, assess their progress and evaluate students’ learning programs.
Eligible students are invited to attend a range of field services throughout the year.
These are held at geographical central points in the core catchment area of our school. Current Outreach areas include: Hughenden, Clermont, Cape River, Ewan, and Townsville.
At certain times during the year, students are invited to Charters Towers to participate in a structured learning experience. These activities are held at the school and are an opportunity to participate in a range of learning and assessment activities designed to maximize the support available to our students.
Held at set times during the school year, mini-schools are an opportunity for students to come together to participate in a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular activities under the supervision of the teaching team. Students ‘camp’ at the school or stay at other venues in town during these activities.
