Prep A ready to go into the Life Education Van


Year 10 students had the opportunity to attend the Tin Can Bay P-10 School FSK Camp at Barambah Environmental Education Centre.

This camp gave our students the chance to immerse themselves in their Work Practices Certificate, a nationally recognised Certificate II course and gave our students quality time to complete the Indigenous Perspective Module in an authentic setting.

The class also visited the Ration Shed at Cherbourg, speaking with Uncle Eric to gain insight into the experiences of the Indigenous Elders and community members, as well as seeing first-hand the historical photographs, artefacts and buildings from the era.

At the final stop in Gympie at the Regional Art Gallery, the class were able to enjoy an Indigenous art exhibition and explore their own artistic interpretations. The students were respectfully engaged in the whole three-day experience and were able to make solid progress on their certificate course.


Healthy Harold and the Life Education Van visited all the students in Prep to Year 6. Life Education Queensland engages students with programs that provide information, understanding, skills and strategies required to make safe decisions about their own health and well-being.

All students enjoyed their visit to the van and walked away with the knowledge of how to make safer and healthier choices.


Last month, Year 5 students from Tin Can Bay State School went on an excursion to the University of the Sunshine Coast Careers Expo, held at the USC Gympie Campus.

They saw a number of displays and participated in activities for various career options. In the science laboratory, students learned how to test what liquid was in different bottles.

At the criminology display, students used the evidence provided to solve the case of the break-in at the Three Bear’s house.

Students also explored different career options in music production, including how to add sound to a short-animated video and the opportunities at HQ Plantations- the company that manages the pine plantations around Tin Can Bay. Did you know that it is the largest plantation company in Queensland?

The students thoroughly enjoyed themselves and extend a huge thank you to USC!
