    and Skype

  • Principals Message

    The Queensland Academy for Science Mathematics and Technology (QASMT) is

    one of the most successful and prestigious selective entry state high schools in

    Australia. Our Academy is one of three conceived under the Smart State Agenda,

    aimed at providing a genuine transition for highly capable students in years 10,

    11 and 12 between senior school and university. It is a school whose exceptional

    academic standards rest easily beside great endeavor and success in a wide

    range of activities.

    We are fortunate to have outstanding teachers who consistently contribute to the lives of our students.

    Inspirational teaching and quality learning are our cornerstones ensuring that our Academy is ranked as

    one of Australia's finest schools, consistently achieving outstanding learning outcomes.

    Our Academy aims to extend students learning by blurring the line between school and university. The

    curriculum is rigorous and was developed in partnership with The University of Queensland ensuring our

    students experience a smooth transition to tertiary education. Our core curriculum is the International

    Baccalaureate Diploma; a program that has earned a reputation for rigorous learning and assessment,

    enabling IB diploma recipients access to the world's leading universities.

    As one would expect, our curriculum has a strong emphasis on the sciences and mathematics. Our

    partnership with The University of Queensland ensures students have access to and use technologies to

    gain exposure to the cutting-edge of these disciplines in a manner which values academic rigor.

    Underpinning our academic success is an outstanding pastoral care system supporting every student and

    helping each one to feel a vital part of the QASMT family. Student welfare is implemented through a

    Mentor Program ensuring all students achieve to their potential. We believe in the importance of guiding

    students to become responsible and caring individuals, who are sensitive, open minded and respectful of

    all cultures. QASMT aims to develop tomorrows leaders; individuals who will be internationally-minded


    Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent. At

    QASMT, we understand this responsibility, and that is why we are committed to and passionate about

    nurturing our students academic, social and personal development in a caring and safe community.

    We provide a world class education in an environment where we nurture excellence, foster innovation

    and celebrate diversity.

  • Chapter 1: Signing up

    This process is a very important step as it is about making your account on Facebook. But,

    these helpful and easy steps will help you get it done under five minutes.

    Step 1 The Sign Up


    This is the page where

    you can create your own

    account on Facebook by

    typing in your personal

    details you name, email

    address, password,

    birthday and your gender.

    Step 2 Your Name

  • Step 4 Your Password

    The box pointed by the arrow is

    where you put your password in.

    Make sure your password is secure

    and that no-one can figure it out,

    so people cant hack into your

    account. A secure password

    should have at least one capital

    letter, one lower case letter, one

    digit or number and one symbol in

    it such as - !.*$^. That way no one

    can figure out your password and your account will be safe.

    Step 5 Your Birthday and Gender

    password, select your

    birthday and gender from the

    pointed section. After that,
