At Balmoral State High School we are committed to providing a personalised learning experience for every student. During student enrolment and at other significant times during the year students are encouraged to explore their interests and career aspirations and to make appropriate subject choices.
Extension opportunities are provided for gifted students; support programs in the areas of literacy and numeracy are offered to those students needing extra input and vocational opportunities exist for students to develop a diverse range of work related knowledge and skills.
Whole school curriculum structure
Year 7, 8 and 9 students undertake a common curriculum context, which is underpinned by the QCAR (Queensland Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting) Framework. Students will also complete National Curriculum studies in English, Mathematics and Science in 2012 and History from 2013.
Students in Years 10, 11 and 12 work towards a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE). Please consult the QSA brochure: QCE at a glance…Planning your pathway.
Unless indicated otherwise, students study each subject for 3 lessons of 210 minutes weekly. This provides a total annual time allocation of 140 hours. All time allocations meet EQ minimum requirements.
