Information for New Primary School Students During the Year
New Primary School students from Years 4 to 6 will be issued an iPad when they commence.
Important: Please note, in order for students to receive their devices parents must read the Acceptable Use Guidelines and complete the online Parent 1 to 1 Device User Agreement Form, otherwise we cannot issue the device until this is done. The agreement and guidelines can be accessed via this link: 1 to 1 Device Agreement Form
New Primary School students are to meet at the Primary School Administration Office at 8:20am, unless prior arrangements have been put in place.
SEQTA Engage (parents') login in details will be emailed to all new parents once your child actually commences at the College.
Your child's SEQTA Learn login details are provided when they start.
Keeping this email safe is important as it will contain your login and password to sign into SEQTA.
SEQTA is a gateway to your child's academic reports, fee statements, notices and your child's academic timetable.
All families will receive an email during the holidays from the Primary School Office with information about the Uniform Timetable. The Primary School Uniform Timetable advises on which days to wear which uniform.
At the start of each term, this information is updated and available via the SEQTA Engage Portal on our website and the College Shop web page.
Primary School parents are encouraged to park near the Worship Centre or down by the swimming pool near the College Shop.
At the Worship Centre, we have a designated Drop n Go zone, which is supervised in the afternoon and supported by Car Park Heroes in the mornings. Senior students will meet you at your car and walk your child to class.
Rim Road is also another option for parking and drop off.
The Immanuel Early Learning Centre Car Park (out the front of the Main Administration Building) is strictly off-limits, as it is for families with children attending the Immanuel Early Learning Centre.
All new students from P-12 will have their Student Photo ID's taken when they start over in the Library.
Prep students will receive 10 free lessons in our Learn to Swim Program as part of PE in term 4.
Under the Education (General Provisions) Act 2006 (Qld) parents have a legal obligation to ensure that their children attend school and if your child is likely to be absent from school for more than 10 consecutive school days (e.g. holiday, illness), prior approval must be obtained from the Principal. An Application for Exemption form can be obtained either from Student Services or the Enrolments Registrar.
If your child is in the Primary School and needs to leave early, you must meet them personally at Student Services to sign them out.
If your child is absent from school, please call the Absentee Line on 5477 3459.
All new students are allocated to one of our four Sports Houses:
Bribie (red), Moreton (green), Stradbroke (blue), and K'gari Fraser (yellow).
Siblings are always placed in the same House.
Just so you know, new students' House allocations are advised when you are purchasing uniforms from the College Shop. It is listed on their system.
Each term, your child will be given a list of co-curricular activities (changes each term) in which they can register their interest to participate.
Please note that at the start of each term, it might take a couple of weeks before the first timetable is issued.
The Innovation Hub (Library) also offers activities at recess time, which includes the Maker Space area, and the Prep to Year 3 have access to activities in the Primary School area.
Chess Mates (external provider) run a chess group/training on Thursdays after school (3:15 pm to 4:00 pm) for Prep to Year 6 students. To register, please go to the Chess Mates website: https://chessmates.com.au/
Lego Masters (robotics using Lego) is also an activity offered.
