Sally and Possum Season 2 (ipad only version)

Sally and Possum Season 2. Sally and Possum are back! Join them as they continue their quest for knowledge and adventure using Australian Sign Language (Auslan) in a series of challenging and rewarding games.

QSchools app

Interact with your favourite Queensland state schools through the QSchools app and receive up-to-the-minute updates. The app integrates with the department's preferred school website platform to allow users to see when news, events and newsletters are posted to their favourite school website. Users can also see other useful information provided by the school such as tuckshop menus, uniform shop information, class times and social media feeds.

The app will enable the school community to receive real-time notifications about state-wide emergency alerts as well as school push notifications through the app.


QParents is a secure, online portal created by the Department of Education and Training to provide parents of Queensland state school students with twenty-four hour access to their child's information. QParents allows you to securely access information about your child and communicate directly with your child's school: anytime, anywhere.
