The use of web based educational
resources has risen steadily over the last decade. Teachers are increasingly using these
resources across Queensland to improve student-learning outcomes.
Our school and teachers make
decisions about the best technology to meet the needs of our students. While the Department provides most of the
resourcing we use at school, sometimes a need exists that is not included. On these occasions, it is beneficial for
students to utilise services provided by third party web based providers.
Coomera Springs State School wishes to utilise the third party web based
service providers listed below to aid students learning. For your child to use these services, their
teacher will need to register them as a user. Registering with these providers
requires student personal information to be disclosed to the provider of the
service. Registration may include
disclosing the following information about your student:
- Student Education
Queensland email address

that are hosted onshore in Australia
and/or outside of Australia. Outside
of Australia means that data that is entered to register for these sites will
be stored on servers that are not based in Australia and therefore are not
bound by Queensland’s privacy laws.
We need your permission for the registration
and use of these sites by your child.
