Community Access Program (C.A.)
Students at SBESC participate in structured programs to engage in a variety of authentic, real-life learning experiences. Experiencing different activities at a variety of venues enables students to transfer skills learnt in the classroom to the wider community. The Centre focuses on the Kidsafe Education package to optimise prior learning, learning during the excursion or incursion, and to reinforce the academic understanding after the event. Parent picnics give parents/carers the opportunity to see what their child can do and to build relationships with other parents and the staff in a less formal setting.
Dedicated ESC staff renew Bronze Medallion swimming qualifications annually to ensure our students are supported in gaining the following important life skills; swimming, water safety in and around the pool, health, hygiene, money skills and independence. Our students familiarise themselves with pool routines and the environment prior to commencing 10-days of campus In-term swimming lessons.
Bike Education Program
Bike Education provides our students with opportunities to learn a range of skills at our purpose built bike track using a variety of bikes and ride-on devices to scaffold skill development and have fun. Students learn road safety rules, as well as how to safely ride and maintain a bicycle.
