Our Community

Biggenden State School is very involves in the local community and has several programs running that link with the community.

Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program 

This program operates each Friday. Students from years 3-6 are engaged and challenged through garden and cooking lessons. The aim of the program is pleasurable food education for young children.

Some of the principles underpinning the program include:

  • The best way to encourage children to choose food that is healthy is to engage them in fun, hands-on experiences in growing, harvesting, preparing and sharing such food at the earliest possible age.
  • Children are more likely to experiment with foods they have grown or prepared themselves.
  • Life-long eating habits develop early.

Parent Group

Parent Support Group - provides parenting ideas, support and strategies to develop happy family life. This group meets at the Biggenden State School Learning Centre each Thursday Morning from 9.30am.

PCYC cadet program

Police Citizens Youth Club Emergency Services cadets - for 13 to 16 years - gives training in emergency situations, team building, leadership and community service. A wonderful program for teenagers, teaching them responsibility, emergency responses and leadership.
