Bournda Programs for Creative and Talented Students

Bournda EEC staff have a theory that the beautiful surrounds of Bournda National Park brings out the best in everybody and that all students have creativity and talent when participating in these programs!

The following programs are offered to schools in Term 2 and usually book out very quickly. We will send booking details to schools in Term 1 2017 but if by all means, let us know if you are interested in any of these opportunities for your students!
