Welcome message

Welcome to  Year 7 - 9 at Brisbane School of Distance Education.
This phase of learning is particularly significant, as it is during Years 7 – 9 that students have opportunities to:
·         Strengthen literacy and numeracy skills
·         Deepen prior knowledge
·         Experience a diverse range of subjects
·         Identify their areas of interest and ability
·         Develop positive relationships with staff and peers
·         Build team work and collaboration skills
·         Improve time management and study skills
The explicit focus on learning during and beyond lessons is essential to student success and BrisbaneSDE provides training and support for home tutors, to help establish this focus at home.
Home tutors can support their student through regularly accessing the school website and subject-specific Blackboard Courses for information updates and access to documents such as WRCs and Learning Guides.
I have long been involved in establishing and developing the years 7-9 agenda and very much look forward to building on the strong foundations at BrisbaneSDE.  I strongly believe that the partnership between students, parents and staff is integral to student success and I look forward to working with you all.
If you have any queries, please refer to the staff contact list on the website to access appropriate support.
