Programs utilise the BIEEC site and local environments of Boyne Island and Tannum Sands. Learning experiences are aligned to Australian curriculum areas with the general capabilities (personal and social capability) and cross curricula priorities (sustainability) being our key learning areas underpinned in all of our programs. Learning areas we specialise in include science, HPE, outdoor recreation and some elements of geography, history and social sciences.
