Ministers:

The Hon Dan Tehan MP
Minister for Education

Minister for Education Dan Tehan has welcomed today’s announcement that Queensland school students would return to classroom learning.

“Today’s announcement that Queensland students will return to classroom learning is fantastic news for students, teachers, parents and principals,” Mr Tehan said.

“It is particularly good news for vulnerable, poor, remote and Indigenous students because they are the ones whose education suffers the most from remote learning.

“Our Government has taken a consistent position to follow the expert medical advice and the expert medical advice has been consistent that schools are safe for students and teachers with the right protocols in place.

“Queensland has developed a plan that will see all year levels return to the classroom over a period of time and sets out sensible arrangements for students, teachers and parents to enable this to happen.”
