Parents’ Power Hour sessions


Who:               CEO, Dr John Griffiths and CIO Phillip Anthony

When:             Wednesday 6 September

Time:               5.30pm – 6.30pm

Venue:            Rockhampton Girls Grammar School

Why:               To inform parents about:

  • ATAR conversion in 2020 including eligibility, pathways, inter subject scaling, subject choices and MTPATH
  • The new QTAC tool which assists students and schools in study planning.  It’s critical that parents are fully informed on how important subject selection for year 10 is, and how it can influence ATAR eligibility and university prerequisites. QTAC is able to provide a depth of knowledge to parents to ensure they have the information to support their children moving forward.
