For those students returning, welcome back to another exciting year at Indooroopilly SHS and to students new to the school, it is my pleasure to introduce an inclusive and rewarding learning environment.
Year 9 is the first year where students are able to choose a wider breadth of specialist subjects and begin to focus their interests and discover new learning opportunities. Allowing students to explore subjects often brings many rewards during their adolescent development. During 2019, my objective is to work with individuals across the cohort to ensure this development is embraced and to best prepare them for Senior Secondary.
A wide variety of activities will be presented to Year 9 students this year. Events, such as excursions, sporting gala days and various competitions throughout the year will allow students to remain active, alert and challenge themselves across a variety of different disciplines. It is the time in their school life to mature further as leaders of the Junior school and deeply embrace learning. From my past experiences, Year 9 is the year where students more confidently take ownership and responsibility for the results they receive throughout the year.
If you wish to contact me regarding any issues, please feel free to do so on firstname.lastname@example.org or 3327 8338. You can also contact the subject Heads of Department (for curriculum matters), and Student Services (for absences). All these details can be found on the contact page of the school website.
Once again, I am sure 2019 will be one of the years to remember and look forward to seeing positive development in every student.
Year 9 Coordinator
