Hello and welcome to Central Queensland Christian College!

We are dedicated to helping each child reach their potential: academically, spiritually and socially, in a safe, caring environment.

We encourage students to enjoy friends, fun, learning, and life itself.

Please consider enrolling your child, preparing them for their future.

Warmest regards,

Teachers as Research project; 21st Century Learner Skills:

As part of our 21sst Century Learner Teachers as Researchers Project, CQCC has put an emphasis on learning and practicing the skills necessary to become more organised and independent learners. We sent out this survey at the beginning of the year and used the results to identify what skills we needed to help students further develop during 2015. It's time to see how far students have come by taking the survey again. For better results, we ask that you fill out the survey multiple times - once per student.

Status Update Re Water Supply

Dear Parents,
You are probably already aware of the current water situation in Rockhampton but I am sharing the Council's update below in case you missed it.
In response to this situation, CQCC has arranged a supply of bottled water and will allocate one bottle per student per day.
While the water in our pipes is currently deemed safe we are aware that some people are experiencing headaches and nausea. We are taking this measure to ensure students can stay focused on learning. It is also a contingency if the water supply does become unsuitable.
Warmest regards,
Michael Appleton

Year 5-6 Visual Arts Lesson at home 20 Feb 2015

From Miss Toohey:
This is the moth the Year 5/6 students discovered outside the classroom earlier today. Some of the students were a bit disappointed to miss out on their art lesson tomorrow. We have placed this photo on our website so students can see it to draw.

Instructions for Year 5/6 Students:
Study this photo of a moth. Take note of the shapes, lines & colours.
Practise your observational drawing skills and try to copy this moth in the same detail.
Remember, you may need to draw it more than once! Keep all your copies and number them in the order drawn.
