PublishingPageContent

​The Department of Education is committed to developing and implementing a statewide continuum of educational delivery to ensure that students with chronic health or complex mental health conditions receive specialised and appropriate educational support at all stages of their illness. 

Alongside our Queensland Children's Hospital School campuses, students in other hospitals can be supported through our new Virtual hospital education program

Student registration

To register your child, please complete this form

Current locations:

  • The Prince Charles Hospital (Brisbane)
  • Princess Alexandra Hospital (Brisbane)
  • Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital (Brisbane)
  • Mackay Base Hospital​

Plans are currently underway to expand this service to further regional and rural hospitals.

Who can attend?

Students who are:

  • inpatients of a participating hospital;
  • in Prep to Year 12;
  • enrolled in any state, Catholic or independent school; and
  • anticipated to miss four or more days of school. ​

School-aged young people who are not currently enrolled in a school may also be able to attend. The teacher can work with the student to re-engage them in school or another learning pathway.

How does it work?

Students are encouraged to use their own or their family's device (4G enabled) if they have one, or they can borrow a QCHS laptop or iPad (at some locations). Teachers use Microsoft Teams to engage students in one-on-one or small group lessons that may be up to 30-45 minutes in duration. Times are negotiated between the teacher and student, and occur within a regular school day (9am-3pm). Timing is flexible to encourage students' participation and engagement, with consideration of their treatment needs and level of wellness.
