Independents back to school
INDEPENDENT schools across Ipswich and Queensland are preparing to welcome more than 110,000 students back into their classrooms from today.
Independent Schools Queensland executive director David Robertson said despite recent floods, all students at Queensland’s 188 independent schools would be returning.
“Schools are very grateful for the hard work and determination of everyone who pitched in to remove mud, clean pavements and scrub walls,” Mr Robertson said.
“Each school is keeping in close contact with families to ensure students from flood-affected areas are well supported and provided with what they need.
“The first week of school presents an important opportunity for students to settle back into an established routine after the difficulties of recent weeks.”
