Welcome from Dean of Students 


Dean of Students (Middle Secondary) - Matt Petersen (also Year 10 Coordinator)
Email: mpete21@eq.edu.au
Ph: (07) 3249 1400

The Middle phase of High School is an exciting time where the curriculum expands with more elective subjects and students become more independent in their learning. There is a focus on exploring the skills and capabilities needed to succeed in various Quality education and employment pathways as students transition from the Junior to the Senior School.

As Dean of Student my focus is on developing process goals where students reflect on and develop habits for success. At Yeronga SHS we have five Ps – work habits for success in all walks of life:

  • Being Positive – approaching work and school life with optimism
  • Being Punctual – responsibility and time management
  • Being Prepared – ready to learn, ready to succeed
  • Being Productive – developing grit and perseverance to produce my best work
  • Being Proud – is this the best I can do/be?

Year 9 Coordinator

Welcome to Year 9!

We have a stimulating and challenging year ahead. My role as Year 9 Coordinator is to work with the Yeronga team to foster the well-being of students. In term one, we will look at connection: connection to self, friends, family and the broader community. We will work towards a project in which the Year 9s complete a project that gives back to the Yeronga community. If you have any practical talent you can give, please let me know because that could influence the projects we choose. I would love to hear from you.

This term we will be focusing on uniform and attendance. If you would like to talk to me about uniform or attendance issues please phone 3249 1469 or email. Email is the easiest as I am more likely to be near my computer than near my staffroom desk.


Year 10 Coordinator


Year 10 Coordinator - Ashley Wall

Ph: (07) 3249 1400

Year 10 is the beginning of senior school at Yeronga State High School.  This year the students explore various options, opportunities and pathways in their educational journey.  Senior Education and Training Plan (SET Planning) in Term 3 is an important event in the Year 10 calendar.  SET Planning requires students choose the pathway for their education, and it is an opportunity for them to think about their post school career goals.

As the Year 10 Coordinator, my role is to work with students and their parents/care givers to ensure students have Quality Pathways to Success.

Please don't hesitate to contact me or your student's teacher if you require information or support.
