Springer Progress Conversations


​Dear parents/caregivers, 

Thank you for your patience while the details of this event have been pivoted to reflect the current health directives and uncertainty of this current time. As per the last update sent Tuesday 10 August, the Springer Progress Conversations have been rescheduled for Wednesday 1 September 2021 from 12.30- 7pm. While we would prefer to be able to offer in-person interviews for this event, current health directives do not allow for it. As such, our Springer Progress Conversations for Semester 2 will be conducted via phone. 

Change of hours for Wednesday 1 September

As we have done in the past, to support these conversations, the school day will be shortened and students will be dismissed from school at 12pm. The normal school day will be compressed into CARE, period 1 and period 2 with a short morning tea break to be held between them (see table below). Bell times will be adjusted for the day. 

CARE class 9:00-9:10am 
Period 1 9:10-10:20 
Morning Tea 10:20-10:50 
Period 2 10:50-12:00 

The school would appreciate parent/ carer support in making alternate arrangements for students to make their way home on this day. Where parents are unable to make arrangements, supervision will be available in the school library between 12:00-3:00pm at parent request by Monday 30 August 3pm. Students with the permission and ability to do so must return straight home. Students are NOT permitted to attend Orion Shopping Centre or any associated areas. Orion Centre Management and Queensland Police have been notified of these conditions. Please be advised that normal lessons will not occur in this time and students will be expected to work independently on study or homework, if they remain at school. Parent requests must be emailed to
Regular school bus services will continue on the day after 3pm.
