Weekly Languages Other Than English (LOTE) lessons are compulsory for all students in Years 6, 7 and 8 who reach the National Minimum Benchmark for Literacy.

All other students are given extra English lessons during this time.

Year 6 students study Chinese, which is taught by a LOTE teacher on staff.

Indonesian is currently studied by our Year 7 and 8, which is delivered by Cairns School of Distance Education.

Senior students have the opportunity to enrol in online language courses.

Starting in Queensland in 2019, there will be changes to the curriculum being delivered to Year 11 students and each subsequent cohort.
These changes include a move from the current Overall Position (OP) tertiary entrance rank to an Australian Admission Rank (ATAR), as used by other Australian states and territories.
