Distance Education – Expression of Interest Survey (Queensland)

St. Philomena School is undertaking an exciting endeavour. We are applying to the Accreditation Board to offer a distance education programme. Initially, this will only be open to Queenslanders, but strategically this is of great importance to the SSPX for the whole of Australia.



Dear Families,


Thank you for completing the survey for St Philomena School. We have had a wide variety of responses and are greatly enthused by the support for a distance education program.


We have been working with Independent Schools Queensland to ensure a successful application; however, they have advised for us to allow more time to prepare our application. Therefore, we are now looking at January 2025 as the commencement of the distance education roll out. 


We are aiming to initiate a phased roll out, starting with Year 11, working our way to the lower year levels, hoping that by 2028, we will have all the school years running smoothly and cohesively.


We will keep you updated to our progress and would be most grateful for your ongoing support and particularly your prayers as we deliver the much-needed programme.


If you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to contact me and I will get back to you as soon as I can.


God bless,


Emlyn Davis
