BURNETT STATE COLLEGE


Burnett State College is a progressive secondary school providing quality education for students from Years 7 to 12.

Its stated purpose is to maximise the potential of the whole person for present and future pathways. This is achieved through the provision of challenging curriculum in a caring learning community.

The school works with students to support them to become learners and achievers, respected and respectful individuals with self-discipline who can contribute to the community.

The school’s professional staff offers a disciplined, stimulating and challenging learning environment which encourages students to achieve their full potential. The school has a personalised approach to educational services and focus on developing the whole student: academically, physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually.

Burnett State College understands and values team work and partnerships. It especially recognises the significance and power of the relationships between the school and its parents and wider community.

Subjects/Electives Years 7 to 10: The school offers a distinctive curriculum to maintain its reputation for academic excellence through the delivery of high quality academic programs, including English, Mathematics, Science, Health & Physical Education, Languages other than English, The Arts, Studies of Society and Environment, and Technology.

Electives Years 11 and 12: Maths, English and Science – Vocational Education and Training (VET) subjects in conjunction with Wide Bay TAFE – Certification in the subjects of Hospitality, Tourism, Engineering, Manufacturing and Technology.

Sport: The College participates in an Interschool Sport Program but remains challenged by the distance between schools. Rugby League participation continues to increase, along with Netball and Touch Football and AFL. The College has introduced a new school football jumper and sports shirt, as well as adopting the “Thunder” logo as a school mascot and identity.

Extracurricular activities: Cross Country, Athletics and Swimming Sports Carnivals.  The College remains committed to maintaining the growth of an Instrumental Music Program, and annual musicals are now consistently on the calendar.

Welfare and personal development: Burnett State College has continued to develop and enhance the unique and effective Learning Support initiative called the “Open Roads” Learning Support program. This program not only caters for academic deficiencies and behaviour modification issues, but through very direct link between our students and the school’s many support staff (including the School Chaplain, Youth Support Coordinator, School Nurse, Guidance Officer and Literacy and Numeracy staff), this is a major initiative that solves effectively any bullying issues that may arise through swift and effective counselling sessions.

Special features: School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships, TAFE Flexible Options. Defensive Driving Courses are arranged for Special Needs Students and those striving to become learner drivers in Year 11 as well.
