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

School Closed Friday 20 February 2015

We have been watching the movements of Cyclone Marcia closely throughout the day and it is currently predicted that it will cross the coast tomorrow morning near Yeppoon, with Rockhampton experiencing winds of up to 150km per hour. While the rain is very welcome and we pray that it would go right out West, we are also praying that there would be no damage or destruction.

Even if Marcia fizzled out and become a rain depression, it is likely that we will receive a lot of rain in the next 24hrs with the possibility of flash flooding.

In light of these conditions, please be advised that there will be no school tomorrow.

At this time we encourage each family to make appropriate preparations for the cyclone and stay up-to-date through local media.

We pray that each one of you will be kept safe through this time and we look forward to seeing everyone again on Tuesday as Monday is a Pupil-Free Day.

Warmest regards,
Michael Appleton
