Parent resources




learning@home refers to the ways schools will maintain teaching and learning in the event of a prolonged school closure or student absence.

The Department of Education has a number of online tools and resources to support students.

Curriculum resources for Mathematics and English are available for students to complete at their own pace. Students in Prep to Year 3 may require support to read and understand instructions.

The resources provided here are a sample of activities that can be printed and are designed as a support tool for students to continue their learning and engage in familiar activities essential to their learning and wellbeing.

Additional online resources are available for Queensland state school students through the Learning Place website using student log in. This is the same logon and password that students use to log onto the computers in their classrooms.

About this page

This page is dedicated to supporting our parents to become active participants in their child’s education and in the general life of Karalee State School. Research tells us that students are more likely to be successful when their parents are engaged in their education. A wide range of research has shown that when parents are truly engaged, children:

  • Attend school more regularly
  • Are better behaved
  • Have better academic outcomes
  • Have a greater sense of how to be successful in school
  • Are more likely to graduate and go on to post-secondary education
