​Inspire. Believe. Achieve.

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Queensland Children’s Hospital School (QCHS) community. Our school's vision is to lead excellence in hospital teaching and learning through innovative and inclusive practices.

QCHS is a wonderful place. Our unique, multi-campus school offers quality educational programs to school-aged students who are inpatients, outpatients, and family members of hospitalised families. We provide a safe, supportive and encouraging learning environment for all of our students across all of our campuses.

We know that when a young person undergoes hospital treatment for illness or injury, life for the family can be upended. Starting school at a different place, while facing personal health challenges, can understandably cause our students to feel apprehensive about this new chapter of their education journey. There are so many questions that enter a student's mind. They may wonder about what their first days in their new school will be like, or how they might be able to meaningfully engage in their day-to-day work and broader education goals while they are preoccupied with treatment for their health conditions. 

The staff at all of the QCHS campuses would like to assure the students who are about to begin their time at QCHS: there is a place just for you in our school. We are ready for you, and we will work with you to fulfil your goals.

To the families of our students: we warmly welcome you to our community. We will work to enrich your child's learning experience as they receive treatment, and support them as they inspire in their school community, flourish and believe in themselves, and work to achieve their education objectives.

Our skilled and experienced teachers are able to tailor programs for the individual needs of our students, to maximise learning outcomes, as well as support a seamless transition back to a student’s base school. As medicine continues to advance and improve the health outcomes for our young people, we believe that continued improvement in education standards is essential to ensuring that every student succeeds.

The moments and milestones we share with our students, their smiles and laughter, and their beautiful works of art that line the halls of our school campuses, are the colourful threads that bind our school community together year after year. It is a privilege to come to work in a place where quality learning and wellbeing is such an important part of our job. We hope to create positive lasting memories for our students, and a sense of belonging.

We look forward to working with you; call in and see how we can work together to support your child's education. You are welcome to visit at any time.
