Bus Travel:
 
Many of our students travel to and from school via bus. We work with each of the bus companies to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the students and bus company employees during these journeys.
 
All bus travel is governed by the Code of Conduct for School Students Travelling on Buses. Up to date information on the Code of Conduct for all parties involved can be accessed from: https://translink.com.au/travel-with-us/school-travel/getting-to-and-from-school/code-of-conduct
 
For convenience, copies of the Code of Conduct  (PDF, 905kb) as well as student fact sheet  (PDF, 152kb) and parent fact sheets  (PDF, 205kb) have been downloaded and saved (in June 2017).  
 
Contact details for each of the bus companies can be found in the front of the Student Planner each student is given at the beginning of the school year.

We encourage students to use www.stymie.com.au to make an anonymous report to the school of any bullying or harm that they are experiencing or see. The Stymie website is accessible 24hours a day, it sends reports directly to the Deputy Principals.

QParents:

QParents is a web and mobile application which provides an easier way for parents and carers to interact with our school. Once parents join, it will provide a secure, online access to their child’s student information, anytime, anywhere, through a smartphone, tablet or computer.
 
QParents allows parents to connect instantly with our school to access and manage their child’s student information, including:
  • Attendance and absence details, as well as the ability to notify the school of an absence
  • Behaviour details
  • Academic report cards
  • Class timetables
  • Viewing unpaid invoice details, payment history, and making payments online
  • Viewing and updating student details, including medical conditions and address
  • Enrolment details
QParents will assist both staff and parents in sharing and responding to information in an efficient and effective way.
It won’t replace the traditional ways you communicate with our school, but it will provide another way to communicate with us!

What do you need to do to get started?

Periodically we email invitations to the first parent or carer on our system. If you haven't  received this invitation, please call the school (ph 4192 1222) and we can assist you with the process.
 
From the invitation email, simply follow the instructions to register your QParents account. The process should take less than 10 minutes to complete. Invitations sent by email will only ever come from no.reply@qparents.qld.edu.au. You will not be invited to register from any other email address or organisation.
 
If you do no not want to register you can just ignore the invitation and your child’s student information will not be available to anyone through QParents.
 

Identity Verification – (upon receipt of the invitation email)

 
When registering as a QPAO, you will need to verify 100 points of identity documents online. The 100 points can be made up of documents in the following list:
 
Australian Passport
50 pts
Australian Marriage Certificate
40 pts
Australian Driver Licence
50 pts
Australian Citizenship Certificate
40 pts
Australian Birth Certificate
50 pts
Change of Name Certificate
40 pts
Medicare Card
20 pts
Australian Visa (foreign passports)
20 pts
 
 
 
If you only have 60-90 points of the above ID documents you can still register for QParents, but you will need to attend the school for an additional check after you have registered online. If you don’t have sufficient documents, you might like to nominate another parent as the QPAO.
 
For more information on the online identity verification process, see https://qparents.qld.edu.au/#/help
 

EQ ID

You will also need to have your child’s EQ ID (their Education Queensland identification number) in order to complete your QParents registration. This is available from OneSchool, which you have just used to complete subject selections online. It is in the top right hand corner of the OneSchool screen when your student logs on (oslp.eq.edu.au).
 

Safe and secure

QParents is a secure portal that meets strict industry standards. The Department of Education and Training considers student information to be confidential (it is classified as PROTECTED by the Department). Only people with the right to access information about their child will be given an account. Additionally, as part of the registration process, 100 points of identity will need to be presented to prove that the person who is registering is the person the school invited.
