Education week every week
BURNETT State College approaches teaching like every week is education week.
The dedicated staff strive to maximise the potential of each student, and create the ideal learning environment for individual needs.
BSC provides students with unique opportunities, such as the Certificate 3 in Agriculture.
Students completing their certificate travel to Brian Pastures Research Station every Wednesday to train in agricultural skills and learn about the industry.
Year 10 student Garth Slack has enjoyed learning about agriculture through the course.
“We have been driving tractors, fixing fences, growing hay,” Mr Slack said.
“We have been growing a few pumpkins and selling them through the school.”
This week the students of BSC saw a special theatre performance from award-winning rapper and trained actor Candy Bowers.
The show told the story of Candy’s upbringing, and the trials and tribulations of growing up in the suburbs with South African parents.
These and many other opportunities await students at BSC.
Principal Corey Munson said his school is a lifelong learning centre with a futuristic approach.
“We support the ideals of creating a clear focus on providing your child with the maximum opportunity to discover his or her strengths and to help them pursue their goals and aspirations,” Mr Munson said.
“At Burnett State College, we provide wonderful opportunities every day for extraordinary students, by extraordinary staff.”
