Students' return based on house groups

Students at Woy Woy campus of Brisbane Water Secondary College will return to school one day a week based on house groups.

Students will be allocated a day to attend between Tuesday and Friday.

All students will remain home on Mondays and teachers will teach their classes via Zoom.

On the day at school, home rooms will be assigned for up to 10 students each from the same year group.

"Each room will be supervised by an allocated teacher who will check on the students' wellbeing, educational progress and any other concerns," said principal Ms Rebecca Cooper.

All work, for both students and teachers, would be available online, as would be a Wellbeing team and Learning support team for all students.

Year 11 and 12 students scheduled at school on Tuesdays would be expected to attend school for the full school day.

For student involved in practical subjects, course teachers would provide specific strategies through Zoom meetings.

"Generally speaking, Term 2 will see incursions to support practical lessons," Ms Cooper said.

"Some courses have adjusted practical units until term 3 and 4.

"Some teachers are also offering tuition time outside school hours for IT, timber and textiles."

Ms Cooper said: "We believe this model aims to eliminate disadvantage with a measured and supported return that can be responsive to weekly policy and data analysis at a state and federal level."
