Park Ridge SHS prides itself on providing a modern education that uses the latest technologies to support our student's learning in and out of the classroom.
To achieve this, Park Ridge State High School partners with companies from around Australia and the world to give our students access to world-class educational products and services.
The use of web-based educational resources has risen steadily over the last decade and are increasingly being used by teachers across Queensland to improve student learning outcomes.
Our school and teachers make decisions about the best technology to meet the needs of our students. Sometimes it is beneficial for students to utilise services provided by third party web based providers.
Park Ridge State High School utilises the third party web based service providers listed below to aid students learning. For your student to use the services the teacher will need to register them as a user. Registering with these providers requires student personal information to be disclosed to the provider of the service. In the case of the services outlined below they are private companies that are hosted onshore in Australia and outside of Australia. Outside of Australia means that data that is entered to register for these sites will be stored on servers that are not based in Australia and therefore are not bound by Queensland’s privacy laws.
Registration may include disclosing the following information about your student:
- Student Name
- Student ID
- Year group
- Class Teacher
- Student email
We need your permission for the registration and use of these sites by your student.
Note: It is not compulsory for you to provide this consent – If you decide not to provide consent, this will not adversely affect academic achievement, or any relationships with teachers or the school.
However, without a signed permission form, your child will not be able to participate in learning experiences that use the indicated web resources.
Please read these and ensure that you understand the implications of using this service before giving your consent.
We believe this to be an exciting step forward for Park Ridge State High School. If you have any questions, please contact:
