Outside the Classroom

In developmentally responsive middle grades schools, curriculum encompasses every planned aspect of the educational program

To ensure the education of the whole child, BCC acknowledges that students must be exposed to the world outside the classroom. A generous number of sporting, musical and cultural opportunities are available to students before and after school. Winter and Summer fixtures of interschool sports, athletics, cross country and swimming carnivals are held in order to select representatives for district, regional and state competitions. Musical students can choose from a broad range of musical instruments and voice to continue or commence study. Many opportunities for musical performances exist at school during and after school, in local community events and in the Bundaberg Eisteddfod. BCC students also have access to an extensive Hoof ‘n’ Hook program in which students learn to work closely with cattle to prepare and show them throughout South East Queensland.

The progression of authentic, consequential learning opportunities also exists in the growing Outdoor Program. Embedded in an intentionally designed program is the opportunity for students to grow their Character, Competence, and their connections with Community and Creation. The Outdoor Program includes a variety of compulsory outdoor programs involving overnight camping, hiking, canoeing, ropes courses and more.
