Message from Annastacia Palaszczuk MP (May 4th, 2020)

Here’s our back to school plan for Queensland students.

Students in Kindy, Prep, Year 1, Year 11 and Year 12 will return to school on May 11, while students in Years 2 to 10 will continue remote learning at home.

We will review the situation on May 15, with the goal to return the remaining students on May 25 if low COVID-19 transmission rates continue.

Children of essential workers and vulnerable children are still able to attend school.

A sensible and gradual return is only possible because of Queensland’s success in slowing the spread of COVID-19.

Compare our efforts to what has happened in other parts of the world and Queenslanders should feel very proud.

Keep up the good work!
