The Department of Education is progressively releasing a range of online learning materials for students in years Prep to 12 which will be available on the Department of Education's website from Friday 20 March. This is not designed to replace the need for students to attend school. Please use the Department of Education link on the right side of the page.
If schools temporarily close, teachers may move some or all of your children’s learning online. Most Queensland state school students already have experience in working online using tools such as email, OneDrive, Class Notebook, or the The Learning Place which has tools like Virtual Classrooms, Web Conferencing and edStudios.
