Destination Programs

boardwalk-section-The majority of schools who visit NBEEC are from the state sector; however, occasionally vacancies occur for non-state schools. While the majority of our client schools are located in the Metropolitan Region or lower part of the Sunshine Coast Region, we do however accept bookings from schools across the state.

Professional development opportunities for pre-service teachers and classroom teachers are provided by the Centre with a focus on environmental education and sustainability.

Please note that program design is flexible. Our mainstream programs are developed to support the Australian Curriculum. If you require a specialist program outside our mainstream delivery, please contact one of our centre teachers to discuss.

Pre-visits

Pre-visits ensure the learning experiences align to the classroom curriculum, is differentiated to cater for individual student needs, and the visiting teacher is aware of safety requirements, and excursion procedures.

Pre-visit options will be discussed at the time of booking and the appropriate option chosen:

  • Class visit for programs – the pre-visit experience with students will be used to extend the learning provided.
  • Teacher visits to Nudgee Beach EEC – to discuss in person the needs of the class, align curriculum, visit study sites and discuss Curriculum Activity Risk Assessments etc.
  • Due to the distance to the centre or if teachers have visited the centre recently, teachers can choose to discuss their class needs via the phone. A PowerPoint presentation will be emailed to the schools to work through during the call.
