Queensland Core Skill test (QCS) Information 2018

The Queensland Core Skills test is a significant event for senior students on an OP pathway. The test will be held on Tuesday, September 4 and Wednesday, September 5. We will provide students with a light breakfast on the day, consisting of raisin toast, fruit and juice. Students who prefer a more substantial breakfast should eat at home and then enjoy the light breakfast in the company of their friends at school. 

Students perform best when they are fresh and well rested. Please encourage your child to go to bed early on the night before each test and to drink plenty of water during the day.

The location of the QCS test will be in the MPC using a specified seating plan. Please check that your child has the correct equipment for each session as outlined on the page attached. It is best to keep the equipment for each session in a zip-lock bag.

I would like to wish the students all the very best for the test and pray that they will deliver work to their full potential.
