2007 is proving to be an exciting year already as we focus on curriculum development, quality assessment and developing innovative support practices that are designed to result in improvement for the whole spectrum of our students. Our Year 8 & 9 subjects have been re-written for the new year and Year 10 students will participate in a new 'transition curriculum' that prepares them for their Yr11, 12 school and/or TAFE, USQ, Traineeships or community study. Our teachers work in teams to ensure consistency of curriculum and assessment.

We may be the biggest school in Toowoomba, but our students enjoy the benefit of belonging to one of two campuses ensuring a personalised approach in Years 8-10 and excellent subject range in Years 11 & 12. We are working hard to make our school a human organisation but set high expectations and look for the best possible outcomes for students.
