College Update

Renovation for the Boyne Island and Tannum Sands area’s first independent secondary school is well on-track, with learning planned to start in 2023, and the construction of new buildings set to begin in 2024. With tuition fees now available and registrations open, the local college is well underway with planning their curriculum, and ensuring a unique learning experience for their future students.


Mrs Jenelle Wood, the Education Consultant for the facility, said that the prospective learning experience will put more focus into community, and the college’s immediate surroundings.


“The spaces in which everyday learning is set to take place is a key point of difference to the traditional classroom environment. The ‘places’ on and around the school site are positioned to be learning hubs. The biggest difference in our curriculum is that it has been designed by people who live in this community for students in this community. It is site specific for Boyne Tannum focused on the local environment, using sustainability principles and is a digitally based curriculum.”
