THREE PAGES OF SCHOOL NEWS
SENIOR schooling in Queensland is changing in 2019 to provide students with the skills required for success in work and life in the future.
Across senior subjects, students at Proserpine State High School will acquire 21st century skills to support them as lifelong learners, valued employees, innovators and engaged global citizens.
A significant change to the system from 2020, will involve students no longer receiving an Overall Position and will be ranked for university using the Australian Tertiary Assessment Admission Rank.
Under the new system in 2019 Proserpine State High School will continue to offer an extensive variety of senior subject choices, catering for all our students and their diverse pathways.
These offerings will include 20 General subjects; 15 Applied subjects; nine certificate courses through Vocational Education and Training, as well as external providers; school-based apprenticeships and traineeships; external subject offerings; short courses in career development and literacy; certificates and awards such as those issued by the Australian Music Examinations Board or Duke of Edinburgh program will also be acknowledged under the new system.
Our experienced senior school teaching team have been attending various professional development opportunities to ensure they are prepared, confident and equipped for the upcoming changes.
With teachers who are experts in their subject areas and leading change from the front, the school is ready to support students and parents through 2019 and beyond.
A subject selection evening will be held for Year 10 parents and guardians on August 13.
