TEACHERS from three Ipswich state high schools got together last week to prepare for the 2013 school year.

Bremer State High School, Bundamba Secondary College and Redbank Plains State High School teachers are all involved in a University of Queensland research project into teaching practices, and have used the opportunity to network and work together.

Bundamba Secondary College principal Andrew Peach said the schools planned to achieve greater successes in 2013.

"The fact that we've got three state schools in Ipswich all going so well is a big deal," Mr Peach said.

"People are starting to see the value of public schools, and the social side of the project is great for sharing ideas."

Bremer State High School will welcome its first Year 7 students this week.

Queensland Teachers' Union president Kevin Bates attended the meeting, and said it was important that teaching staff numbers grew in proportion to the growth of student populations.

"According to growth calculations there are hundreds of positions that aren't going to be filled," Mr Bates said.

"The State Government's strategy is rather than removing teachers who are standing in front of classes, they just won't fill new positions, so larger class sizes might happen."
