Senior secondary

An important message to our Senior Students...

In the past, post-compulsory schooling was seen mainly as a preparation for highereducation. Today, however, more and more jobs and careers have as their pre-requisite a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) irrespective of the OP results. We are reaching a period when almost all young people will complete a full secondary education.

Whatever your particular reasons for continuing your studies at William Ross State High School as a senior student, it is important for you to make the best use of your time over the next two years.

To do this, you must have a number of clear and realistic personal goals that you plan to achieve by certain stages during your senior schooling. Your SET Plan will help you to set clear and realistic individual goals by providing a focus for discussion with other students, your parents and with teachers on many aspects of the Senior School. If you are clear on your goals, and you are prepared to work to achieve them, you are well prepared to achieve success.

Each student will be monitored by Administration on their commitment to their senior studies.

Interviews are held in with students and parents when we believe a lack of commitment and engaged has been shown.

In the senior school students are expected to conduct themselves as young adults. The possibility of a mature and friendly relationship between staff and students is one of the great things about being in the Senior School and something both students and teachers value and remember.

Mutual respect, demonstrated by common courtesy and co-operation, is the basis for a good working relationship between teachers and students. A senior student at William Ross has many opportunities to exercise courtesy and co-operation and build up a good relationship with teachers and fellow students.

If you, as a Senior Student, make the right decisions, your time at school will be, like that of many students before you, a valuable and rewarding experience which will prepare you to follow your chosen path in life.
