Further Details:

This orientation morning is aimed at supporting your son or daughter in joining Canterbury College.

We appreciate that families are hoping for as normal a start to the school year as possible, particularly as your son/daughter is starting a brand new school.

And the Queensland Government’s COVID Health Directives have delayed regular on-campus classes by two weeks, with remote learning commencing from this Monday 31 January.

Orientation Session Includes:

  • 1:1 Device Tutorial Session with Mr James Jenkins, our Director of Learning and Teaching Innovation, helping these new students navigate our online learning environment, so they can access resources and participate in remote learning.
  • IT Bootcamp
  • Textbooks Collection
  • ID Photos Taken

As you are aware, the Queensland schools situation is evolving, so we will communicate any event changes that may be required.

Thank you for your patience while we rescheduled the original orientation session.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Secondary School Administration on (07) 3299 0843 should you have any questions.
