Ed­u­ca­tion week ev­ery week

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

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.”
