Enrolment is approved - what now?

 

​As soon as your enrolment is approved, the Student Services team will check if your child has an active email address with Education Queensland (EQ). If your child’s account is active you will be sent an introductory email to your personal 'family' account.

NB. Sometimes this may take 2-3 days from the point of enrolment.

This email sent to you is very important! It contains information about:

  • Scheduled lessons (SLs)
  • Daily notices (where students need to check each day in case their teacher is absent)
  • Start-up procedures
  • Getting yourself organised

How do I get my timetable (for students in Years 7-12)

The first job to do once you receive your welcome email is to download your timetable. You can do this here.

If you are in Years Prep-6, your primary school teachers will let you know when your classes are scheduled.

How do teachers make contact with us?

From this point on, each teacher will make contact with the student via email. Please note the main form of communication is via email and it is very important to make sure the student's email inbox never becomes ‘over quota’. If the student has not received contact from each of his/her teachers within 24 hours after receiving your welcome email, please make direct contact with the teacher/s. A list of staff contacts can be found here.

Communication

The key to success at BrisbaneSDE is communication!

The student, parent and teacher must work together to achieve success. Please feel welcome to email or call your child’s teacher to have a chat if you do have concerns about your child’s ability to cope in a particular subject area.

Teachers will email students and publish announcements on Blackboard Courses.   If your child needs support with general organisation, you will need to double check their email account to ensure they have not missed important information their teachers may have sent them. 

If you are finding a subject a struggle, please make contact with your child’s teacher. It is absolutely essential you communicate with them about any concerns so that they can help you. This may include difficulties with:

  • General understanding of concepts
  • Workload issues (too much to do)
  • Assessment, including send ins, exams and assignments

Scheduled lessons (SLs)

As you know SLs are used to enrich learning in our school. For some students, attending SLs may be a challenge due to medical conditions. If you believe your child cannot cope with SLs, you must contact the Deputy Principal​ to seek exemption.
