Our wonderful 2019 Year 12 cohort are about to finish school and start on their next great adventure.
However, before they leave there are some things they should do to help make their transition from school easier. These are listed below.
Please note that it’s important to activate your Learning Account as this will enable you to easily check your QCS, QCE and OP results on 15 December. Go to Student Connect (https://studentconnect.qcaa.qld.edu.au/) and log in using your LUI number. Your Password is initially set to the first 4 digits of your date of birth.
Tax File Number
If you don’t already have a Tax File Number I would strongly encourage you to apply for one as soon as possible as you will need one not only for employment but for deferring university fees or applying for Centrelink benefits. To apply go to https://www.ato.gov.au/individuals/tax-file-number/apply-for-a-tfn/australian-residents—tfn-application/.
If you feel you need further help with your QTAC application or if your preferencing could do with some help please email me to make a time to meet prior to the end of the school year.
Please check out scholarships on the websites of the universities that you have nominated on your QTAC application and determine if you are eligible to apply for scholarships – apply, apply, apply is my advice.
Please contact Mrs Cross if you need help applying for Apprenticeships or Traineeships.

USC Early Offer Guarantee
Congratulations to the following students who successfully obtained an early offer from USC!
These students have successfully been offered a place as they demonstrated the level of academic performance and potential in line with the OP/rank minimum selection threshold for their preferred program. In addition, they had obtain the permission of Mr Barker, who was required to consider the students’ academic performance, motivation to succeed and personal qualities to support each application.
USC’s Early Offer Guarantee is a program for eligible Year 12 students to gain an early and guaranteed offer to a USC program before they receive their Year 12 results. Students still have to meet all of the entry criteria and getting an early offer is no free ride as all normal course prerequisites still apply.
God bless and finish the year strong. It’s been my privilege to have walked this senior school journey with you and I wish you God’s richest blessings for the future.
Psalm 119:105 says “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” and speaks to when we need to make decisions about the next step. My prayer for you is that God’s word will make things clear for you and guide your future.
