Co-curricular: Middle and Senior Schools
We all know that learning is not limited to the classroom environment, that is why at BCC we offer a large range of sporting, musical, cultural and Agricultural opportunities before, during and after school hours. Co-Curricular Activities Middle and Senior students are encouraged to involve themselves in all aspects of the life of the College.
BCC offers both intra-school and inter-school sporting opportunities. School based, inter-house competition finds a healthy balance between friendly low-stakes participation and fierce competition during carnivals (swimming, cross country and athletics). The College also competes in interschool events within Bundaberg District Secondary School Sport, entering teams in such sports as touch, surfing, soccer, table tennis, ten-pin bowling, netball and basketball. Our teams also contest the district carnivals for swimming, cross country and athletics, the Wide Bay Carnival for surf-lifesaving, and students have the opportunity to be selected for Bundaberg, Wide Bay and Queensland Schools Teams for a wide range of sports.

Hoof ‘n’ Hook
The College Hoof 'n' Hook Program allows students from Years 7 to 12 to train, groom, and show cattle, as well as practice live cattle evaluation and judging. Our Hoof ‘n’ Hook Program is renowned for producing high-performing judges and handlers. The College has also enjoyed significant success in the show ring with its own cattle, prepared by students of the College. Hoof ‘n’ Hook students attain great satisfaction and benefits from working with animals.
Students who join this program develop confidence and gain skills in relating to people by learning to value, listen and respond to others in the beef industry. This can lead to exciting careers in this industry. The judging of cattle further develops the student’s observation, organisation and public speaking skills. In attending shows, students will rub shoulders with leaders in the beef industry. Past students of the College have been recognised by such leaders and have been sought out for judging and cattle handling work.
