Home educators can contact their teacher if they require support. Students in Year 7 – 12 also have the opportunity to attend weekly online classes for each of their subjects.
Our registered teachers are based throughout Queensland, so that families have a teacher in their neighbourhood. These teachers can visit families in person throughout the year and are there to support your family throughout the entirety of your child’s schooling journey.

Faith offers a number of co-curricular activities and programs throughout the year. Some of these activities/programs are available for students at the expense of families. Any offerings are communicated to parents as an opt-in approach prior to ‘signing up’ so families will be aware of costs involved prior to agreeing to the event/activity.
Yes, we can accommodate families who would like to pay fees via a payment plan. This can be discussed with our Finance team.
Summative assessments feed into the students’ grades, whereas formative assessments do not. It is important for your child to complete the formative assessment when it is due to allow time for your teacher to best support student progress before the summative assessment. Formative assessments allow teachers to ascertain how well students have grasped the knowledge and skills that are needed in order to successfully complete their summative assessments.
We will report on each of the eight KLAs (Key Learning Areas) that we have produced workbooks and assessments for, of which your child has completed. This includes adjusted content and assessments. Faith can only report on curriculum content that the school has implemented, monitored and assessed students on.
For each of the KLAs, we will report on what your child has done well in during the semester, what their learning goals will be moving forward, and an overall personalised comment from their teacher. We will also indicate on the report which co-curriculum activities your child engaged in during the semester.
P-6 Unit Workbooks that are distributed each term are intended to be written in and are for one-time use. These do not need to be returned.
All other Faith Resources (novels, science kits, musical instruments, math counters, textbooks, etc.) are borrowed items and must be returned at the end of the term, semester or school year. You can return resources in the following ways:
Students can complete a traineeship/apprenticeship while completing Year 10-12. Faith’s Future Pathways Officer will be able to assist regarding process available to attain a traineeship/apprenticeship.
Students can complete a traineeship/apprenticeship while completing Year 10-12. Faith’s Future Pathways Officer can assist you with the process for attaining a traineeship/apprenticeship.
Enrolment time has some flexibility. You are best to contact the Future Pathways Officer and talk through your student’s current situation as many options are available. Note that ATAR pathways are a bit more rigid.
Yes, Faith students can do courses through organisations such as TAFE. TAFE offers courses that students can do while at school. This is known as ‘Tafe at School’ Program.
This varies from subjects to subject. Generally there are main lesson/s, recorded for later reference and group tutorials for extra help as needed. Most lessons are live online. Some subjects have workshop days (such as Biology, where the practical components are completed). Students at Faith are required to complete a SETP (Senior Education and Training Plan) with the Future Pathways Officer, study at least 4 courses and aim to achieve a QCE with at least 20 credit points by the end of Year 12. Graduation is available to any student who completes their study regardless of achieving a QCE or ATAR.
We hold a Graduation Ceremony and Formal at the end of each year for our Year 12 students. Graduation is held in Brisbane and is an amazing chance for students to be recognised for their achievements throughout their time at school.
