New Secondary School Students

TEXTBOOKS:
Subject textbooks are loaned through the Library and are inclusive of your fees. Textbooks will be available for collection from the Ken Thamm Centre (Library). 

FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL:
Students should aim to be at the College by 8:15 am for an 8:25 am start. All new secondary school students are to meet at the Secondary School Admin office. The year Level Coordinators/home group teacher will personally escort students to their Home Groups and introduce them to their buddies and teachers.

LOCKER ALLOCATION:
All new Secondary School students must ensure that they have purchased a lock for their locker. These are available via the College Shop or can be purchased elsewhere. Combination locks are recommended.

SPORTS UNIFORM: 
Secondary Students (Years 7 to 12) are advised to refer to their printed timetables noting where they have a double HPE or Sports and Activity lesson. On these days they will be required to bring their sports uniform to the College and change prior to their lesson. In the past, Year 7 students were allowed to wear their sports uniform to the College on the day they have a Sport and Activity lesson. If there is any change to this arrangement, it will be communicated via the Year 7 Co-ordinator when your child starts. All Secondary School students wear their formal summer uniform for the first day of school.

SECONDARY SCHOOL HOURS: Start:   8.25am Finish: 3.10pm

PARKING:
Secondary School parents are encouraged to park near the A J Jericho Stadium.
To keep traffic flowing, we request that parents remain in their cars at the drop off and turn around points. 

The Immanuel Early Learning Centre Car Park (out the front of the Main Administration Building) is strictly off limits for College families to park and drop off unless they have a child in the IELC.

COLLECTION OF COMPUTING DEVICES FOR NEW STUDENTS:
All new students will be issued their device at the ILC IT Department in the KTC Library. Parents must read the Acceptable Use Guidelines and complete the online Parent 1 to 1 Device User Agreement form prior to collecting the device. This form and guidelines can be accessed via this link: 1 to 1 Device Agreement Form.

PROCEDURE TO LEAVE EARLY:

If your child needs to leave the College early, they must sign out in the Student Services Office and provide written evidence that you have approved an early departure. An email or phone call from you to Student Services is also acceptable, and your child can meet you at a pre-designated collection point.

ABSENTEE LINE:

If your child is absent from school, please call the Absentee Line on 5477 3459.

EXTENDED HOLIDAYS:

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.

SECONDARY SCHOOL TUCKSHOP:
