Dear Parents/Caregivers,

Capra_Chris.JPGWe enter the last two weeks of Term 3 with end of term assessment activities occurring over the next fortnight.  During this time, a number of Rugby League, Soccer and Australian Rules Football teams play their finals. In addition, a number of performing arts groups have their culminating activities in front of audiences. Good luck to all our students as they enter this assessment and culminating activity period. 

The school has about 230 students from NSW who are currently learning at home. The teachers have been busy ensuring that they deliver lessons to both the students who are here at school and to the students who are at home. To increase the level of complexity, 31 of our teachers are delivering their lessons from NSW to both students in QLD classrooms and to students in NSW via MS Teams. With a change in classroom dynamics due to the border lockdown, if your child needs additional support, please contact the teacher in the first instance and then a Head of Year or Head of Department should you require additional support. 

All Year 10 students should have completed their SET Plans and subject selection forms for 2022.  If your child has not completed this task, please make arrangements to meet with Jason Cross, Deputy Principal. 

Well done to the Hospitality Students and Performing Arts students who once again made Restaurant Week such a successful event. Now in its fourth year, the students’ front and back of house ability and skill continues to improve each year continuing to set a new benchmark.

Student Leadership Selection

The process for Junior Secondary Prefects will begin early next term. Now is the time for students to be speaking with current Prefects, Captains and Heads of House about the roles and being redy to complete nomination forms once released.

We wish all of our students well on their leadership journeys.

Students Planners

At this very busy time of year, it is easy for students to feel overwhelmed by the amount of assessment that they need to complete. The easiest way to alleviate this pressure is careful time management using a school planner. This planner should be taken into class every lesson and key dates (due date for drafts, due dates for assessment, returning excursion notes etc.) recorded. By doing this, the student can avoid the last minute meltdown that often drags the whole household into panic. Using class time effectively and accessing teacher help will also help manage academic tasks. Parents are encouraged to check their child's planner and help them prioritise tasks. It's also a helpful way to check the "facts" that a student will often tell their parents (i.e. :"my teacher didn't give me any homework", "I have no assignments due"). 

Please do not hesitate to contact Teachers directly via phone or email. All email addresses can be found on the "staff contact" tab on the PBC website.

The ‘busy end’ of the Term is upon us. It is a good time to check in with your student to see how they are feeling about their achievements so far this term and how they will meet the challenges that remain. While it will include subject assessment, demands might also include sporting finals, musical or drama performances and club activities, not to mention family and social events. 

You can support your child by helping them map out their final few weeks – their commitments, deadlines and plans for revision and study. You can access your child’s assessment calendar here. Breaking large tasks – such as preparing to write a History essay under exam conditions – into smaller tasks – maybe half an hour of practising writing out essay plans – can reveal how achievable the job ahead actually is. This in turn can reduce stress for students – and their parents. 

After the holidays, school recommences on Tuesday 5 October 2021.

Year 10 (2022) Subject Selections

As of last Thursday, all Year 9 students should have completed their 2022 subject selections for next year. This includes completing their subject selections online and submitting a paper copy to Y Block. We thank all of our students and parents who have completed this process and Senior Secondary looks forward to welcoming your students next year.

As we enter the last 2 weeks of term, Senior Secondary will go into shutdown exams for Year 12 first in Week 9 and then Years 11 and 10 in Week 10. The exam schedules have been published on the school website below. Students need to know the date, time and room of their assessment.  

Term 3 assessment calendars are already available on this page.

Main points are:

  • Year 12 full shutdown all of Week 9 and 10 (6 to 17 September) for Mock exams and Applied Assessment. Specific arrangements are being organised for Tweed students.
  • Year 11 full shutdown Week 10 (13 to 17 September)
  • Year 10 full shutdown Tuesday to Friday of Week 10 (13 to 17 September)

Note that as External exams will commence at 9:00am, PBC will have the same start time for Mock exams. For consistency and due to the vertical nature of Care roll marking the following arrangements will occur:

  • All end of Term 3 exams will commence at 9:00am for Years 10 to 12
  • Senior Care Roll marking classes will not run in Weeks 9 and 10 of term
  • Period 1 teachers will read notices and give messages, and attendance details will be collated on Period 1 data

Year 12

QTAC applications

Students are reminded that they should be finalising their QTAC applications for 2022. They have all been sent emails regarding this process. Students also need to register with QTAC to receive their ATARs (the QCAA does not calculate ATARs and unless students register they will not be emailed their ATAR on 18 December).

The following resources may be useful for students:

Year 12 results

The QCAA no longer mails out certificates and results to students at the end of the year. On 18 December they will provide a digital copy of results into each students’ QCAA learning account.

All Year 12 students should by now have logged onto their QCAA learning account in the QCAA student portal. This is accessed via the myQCE website

Please check that your student has completed this. They have been reminded on many occasions and sent emails regarding this but we can see that there are still some students that have not yet registered.

The QCAA has also updated the schedule for External Exams due to the change of the Brisbane Show Holiday affecting exams. This means that Health Education, Music and Economics are scheduled as the first exams on 22 October.

To access the External Assessment timetable please visit the myQCE website:

The Directions for Students, approved Equipment lists and External Assessment Resources have also been published for students on the myQCE website above and on the school webite:

Students need to be aware of these documents and procedures. Class teachers will discuss this with students and we will practice for these in the coming Mock exams.

Students will also be required to bring photo ID to all External Exams and, depending on advice from the Chief Health Office, masks.

Year 11

Year 11 students will finalise Unit 2 in shutdown during Week 10 of this term 13 to 17 September.

Moving forward Year 11 students will commence the summative units for ATAR in Term 4 of this year and will have their first assessment for Unit 3 in the last week of Term 4. This will be a full shutdown in the week of 22 to 26 November .

A reminder that all students must have passed a Unit of English and Maths by the end of Unit 2. Students that do not meet this requirement will have to complete Unit 1 or 2 gain in 2022 to be eligible for the QCE. 

Year 10

School-based Apprenticeships and Traineeship (SATs)

Year 10 students are reminded that they are much better off commencing a school-based apprenticeship and traineeship (SAT) in Year 10 than in Year 11. Please see Ms Shreeve in Y block for more information regarding SATs.

Exam Shutdown

Please note that Year 10 Exam Shutdown commences on Tuesday in Week 10. We wish all of our Year 10 students the best of luck in all of their exams.

Assessment policy

This policy is published on the school website. If students are absent for an exam they must contact their teacher and provide a medical certificate (allowances will be made for  border restrictions ).

A reminder that all assignments are due at 9:00am on the due date and that teachers are instructed to make a judgement on the evidence, which is available at this time. Late assignments are not accepted.

Students are reminded to back up their work via USBs, emails or cloud storage as computer malfunctions and losing assignments are not grounds for an extension.

Attendance - Every Day Counts

As our Year 10 students are rapidly approaching the non-compulsory phase of schooling (and indeed some students have already begun this phase) it is essential that students are attending each and every day of school. Our School's target is 92%. We challenge each and every student to strive to obtain this goal. What is your student's current attendance rate?

Last Wednesday our Year 9 and 10 Drama Excellence class were extremely grateful to have the opportunity to perform on the prestigious Bille Brown Stage at The Queensland Theatre Company in Brisbane as a part of The Scene Project. Each year a playwright is commissioned to write a new play, and selected schools are tasked with the challenge of creating their own unique 15 minute performance of their version of the play. The Scene Project focusses on collaboration, building confidence and encouraging live performance in a professional space and manner. During the rehearsal and devising phase, we hosted a director from the Queensland Theatre Company as an Artist in Residence to facilitate a workshop with our CAX Drama students in exploring ‘We are the Mutable’ by Matthew Whittet. After the participating schools performed their work on Wednesday morning, a cast of professional actors from the Queensland Theatre Company presented a full interpretation of the play, providing our young artists and teachers new ways of making and shaping texts. The final stage of the project was a learning forum, that allowed our students to acknowledge the skill and artistry of their peers as well as engage in robust discussions about performance building. An extremely valuable experience for all involved!

Last Tuesday evening we hosted the Senior Soiree, an evening to celebrate the outstanding work of our Years 10, 11 and 12 Music Excellence students. We were very excited to host family and the PBC community to enjoy the work our Senior Music Ex students have developed in what has been a very challenging year. There were a number of performances across all year levels, showcasing a diverse range of unique talents and genres of music. Each individual performance highlighted the passion, professionalism and creativity of your young artists and thoroughly engaged the audience. We are hosting the Junior Soiree tomorrow evening in the Theatre. A fabulous way to end Term 3!

All of our Dance Excellence students are competing at the 9th Annual Star Bound Entertainers Festival this weekend. We have had a number of postponements and look forward to performing all the work the students have been preparing. All the best for this weekend PBC Dance Ex students and teachers!

$20 Boss Market Day

Our Year 9 Economics and Business Students have recently participated in the $20 Boss Business Development Program. This has all been made possible by the generous support of the Bendigo Bank Tugun Community Branch who donated $20 per student, totalling over $2000 to make the event happen! $20 Boss is an entrepreneurial program that supports students to solve a real problem and helps them better understand their relationship with money.

Students were required to create a business that addresses a social/environmental issue within the school community. They were assessed on knowledge, application and communication of a business plan as well as their trade display on the school market day. The product (good or service) created had to address an identified issue/problem/gap in our local community. We had some amazing entries including Brownies to Beat Domestic Violence, Sweets and Succulents- Raising money for Suicide Awareness and many more.

Thanks again to our 9 Economics and Business teachers and Allan from the Bendigo Bank for your ongoing support.

2021 Daffodil Day was another yellow, fun filled fundraiser. PBC participated through a casual dress day with students encouraged to wear yellow and bring a gold coin donation. Senior Leaders also sold Yellow cupcakes at break times, kindly baked by our Hospitality staff and students. The Guess the number of Lollies in the Jar was a hotly contested competition with young year 7 student Will H taking out the prize, with a guess of 1080, just 6 away from the actual total of 1086! Congratulations Will, we recommend you share that stash with all your friends and family. Through our fundraising initiatives, PBC raised over $2000 which will be donated to the Cancer Council. Many thanks to all staff and students who helped and supported this wonderful cause.

Huge congratulations to Keano Kini (Year 12) who has been named joint winner of the Justin Hodges Medal for his performance throughout the Langer Trophy/NRL Schoolboys Cup season this year! This is a fantastic accolade for Keano and very well deserved.



Australian Schoolboys Merit Team

Huge congratulations to four PBC Rugby League Reds, Deine Mariner, Tom Weaver, Jack Cullen and Ryan Foran, Year 12 who have been named in the Australian Schoolboys Merit Team! 

The Australian Schoolboys are recognised as part of the NRL’s elite pathway, and while the capacity to play an international fixture this year is unlikely, the 2021 merit team continues the tradition of representing Australia at the Under 18 level.

What a wonderful honour being chosen to be part of the Australian Schoolboys legacy. 



Staff Wellbeing Champions

A big congratulations to Ms Binnie, Ms Kerwick, Ms McGlynn and Mr Jenkins who have all been acknowledged by Education Queensland for being Wellbeing Champions - for demonstrating outstanding commitment to staff wellbeing. This amazing team of wellbeing champions continually provide PBC staff with many opportunities to be involved in activities designed to improve their wellbeing outside of learning time. Thank you to this amazing crew!

Bendigo Bank - Tugun Community Branch - Scholarship Program


The commitment of Community Bank Tugun, part of Bendigo Bank, to build stronger communities is demonstrated by what we do – from sponsoring local sporting clubs through to providing grants to local community groups.  

Much of this commitment is focused on our youth and from 2018 we took this one step further when we launched the Community Bank Tugun Scholarship, which was aimed at assisting local students who were academically capable and community-minded but experiencing difficulty in funding the high cost of tertiary study.  Subsequently, we have supported 6 students since the program began with various university degrees. 

Our Community Bank Branch is proud to support local youth to further their education, and maybe one day our community will benefit directly from the skills and knowledge they bring. 

We are excited to announce that our Scholarship program will continue with support of another 2 local students in 2022. 

An information sheet detailing the Scholarship’s criteria is below. In addressing the scholarship’s criteria, a demonstration of academic achievement, community involvement and contribution, leadership roles and the financial and/or social challenges being experienced is required. 

Our Scholarship will invite applications from 23 August 2021 until 31 January 2022.

2021 Early School Leavers survey

The Queensland Government is seeking the support of the school community for the annual survey of Year 10, 11 and 12 students who left school in 2020, before completing Year 12. This short, confidential survey collects information about what young people are doing the year after leaving school. The results of the survey help provide valuable information to improve services available to school leavers in the future.

Between August and September, these school leavers can expect to receive instructions to complete a web-based survey or a telephone call from the Queensland Government Statistician’s Office. Please encourage them to take part. If their contact details have changed, please assist the interviewer with their updated details or forward the survey to their new address so they can participate.

Thank you for your support of Next Step post-school destination surveys in 2021.
