School facilities

Queensland Government schools have extensive resources and facilities to support innovation and 21st century learning including eLearning technology; computer, science and multimedia laboratories; and academic, vocational, creative arts and sports facilities.

Teaching approach

Our teachers are highly qualified and recognise each student's individual academic, social and emotional needs. Students are encouraged to harness their unique talents, develop a love of lifelong learning and fulfil their potential.

We celebrate diversity in our schools and strive to create global citizens through an inclusive school environment, expanding the study of languages and developing students' ability to communicate across cultures.

Quality assurance

All EQI schools provide quality assured programs for international students. This ensures consistent high standards in:

  • teaching practices and school management
  • accommodation, health and safety
  • student counselling and guidance
  • school facilities.

International students are covered by The Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act, which ensures high standards of education, facilities and support while you are in Australia. You can find out more about these protections in the ESOS student factsheet.
