 Yeronga State High School:

Quality Pathways to Success …

Yeronga State High School is a strongly connected, environmentally conscious, school community that has the well-being of the child central to all learning experiences. Students will be equipped with the real world capabilities, experiences and knowledge to think creatively and critically as active participants in a global community. (Vision Statement)

Deputy Principal (Years 11 and 12) - Phuong Truong


Ph: (07) 3249 1400

At Yeronga State High School our school culture and curriculum is focused upon the holistic development of each student to enable them to create and access a world of opportunities.

This is embodied in our Vision above and our Latin motto Scientia ac Humanitate (Knowledge and Humanity) which we interpret as:

'creating knowledge, benefiting all'

Our Senior Secondary School is supported by a Quality team of expert staff dedicated to working with students throughout Years 10, 11 and 12.

We believe in:

  • a diverse range of quality pathways through the Senior School
  • academic and career guidance for all students
  • 21st Century skills for lifelong learning complemented by real life learning
  • leadership opportunities for all students

Students entering the Senior phase of learning in Queensland schools elect to study a number of subjects over a set pattern and period of time, usually two years. Students at Yeronga State High School are encouraged to select subjects that they enjoy and interest them. In addition to their academic studies, the school provides a wide range of sporting and cultural opportunities.

As Deputy Principal of the Senior Secondary School, my team and I see it as our responsibility to provide numerous interactions, opportunities and programs for all students to achieve success as outlined in our Vision and motto. The links that follow are examples of these opportunities framed around our guiding values of: 

Quality, Harmony and Sustainability

Quality –excellence in all that we do

Harmony – unity through tolerance and understanding

Sustainability –enduring and maintaining balance

On behalf of my team, the Dean of Students and Year Level Coordinator, I welcome you to our amazing school.

Welcome to Senior School!  

As students enter the post-compulsory, senior phase of learning, they are provided with numerous opportunities and pathways, not only at school but also in the world of work.  

As Senior School Head of Department, my role is to provide guidance and advice to students and their parents/carers to ensure students find their pathway to success. This begins with the SET Plan process in Year 10, continues with academic monitoring and support through Year 11 and 12 and even extends to our Year 13's through our Link and Launch program. 

Student progress towards the attainment of their QCE will be monitored and guidance provided as students apply for post-school opportunities.  

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or require information about the programs and support we offer students. 

Year 11 Coordinator

Year 11 Coordinator - Nick Unsworth-Smith
Ph: (07) 3249 1400

Welcome to Year 11! This year is a valuable learning journey for students as they commence studies in their individual chosen subjects, carving the pathway to their future. They will build on the skills they have acquired in the junior school, identifying strengths and interests to ensure future success. As Year 11 Coordinator, I look forward to supporting the students as they navigate the senior phase of learning, promoting academic excellence, quality pathways and harmony within the cohort. Together we will continue to build on 21st century skills enabling students to be responsible and independent learners, further preparing them for higher education, work and engagement in a complex and rapidly changing world.  

All students participating in the Senior Phase of Learning must be working towards a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE). The QCE is Queensland's senior school qualification, which is awarded to eligible students, usually at the end of Year 12.

Please contact me if you have questions at any stage of the year, or require information regarding Year 11.

I would like to warmly welcome back our Year 12 students and their families for what will undoubtedly be one of the most significant periods in their schooling life. As Year 12 Co-ordinator, it is a privilege to continue, and with mixed emotions, inevitably conclude the senior schooling journey with the Class of 2022. I have been inspired and encouraged by these wonderful young people. I look forward to advocating for them, supporting and cheering them on, and seeking memorable opportunities to ensure a sense of nostalgia as they look back on their final year of high school.

Community and connection will be the essential ingredient as our Year 12's navigate and conquer the academic obligations and social experiences that lay ahead of them. I would encourage our senior students to realise the value in strengthening their connections with both their teachers and peers. Yeronga State High School has a wonderful team of teachers and support staff who are dedicated to delivering opportunities for the best possible outcomes for each individual student.

I look forward to sharing with our Year 12's the many milestones that accompany the final year of high school.
