In 2019, current Year 9 students will be the first to undertake the new senior pathway system that is being introduced throughout Queensland. These students will be the first to receive an ATAR score in 2020 when they graduate. Their ATAR score will be based on a mixture of internal & external assessment.
We strongly encourage all families to view the following resource via the Department of Education & Training.
