and History, Bribie Island State High School offers the following speciality
subjects which are popular with international students:
Film, Television and Media Studies
Students explore the design and production of media products in a range of creative and journalistic contexts, learning to critique the ways in which meaning is constructed and audiences are manipulated through the media.

Bribie Island State High School offers a range of
extra-curricular activities including:
International students are expected to maintain 100%
attendance unless there is an illness.
Medical certificates are required if international students are ill for
more than two days in a row. Medical
certificates must be provided to the school within five days of an absence.
As required by the Australian Department of Immigration,
Bribie Island SHS keeps records of international
student attendance. A consecutive
written warning system is in place if attendance falls below 95%, 90%, and
85%. If attendance falls below 80%, the
law requires us to inform EQI and the Department of Immigration. This can lead to the cancellation of a
student visa and result in the sudden return to the student’s home country. Absences therefore must be minimised.
Homestay parents are required to notify the school by phone on
3400 2460 or email the absentee line
if their international student is going to be away sick.
