Our town is famous for its yummy mangoes which we eat in the summer months and our beautiful beaches. Bowen is just north of Airlie Beach and approximately 40km from the Great Barrier Reef. Fishing is very popular here! Bowen has its very own Fishing Classic, which runs in September each year. Farming is immense in Bowen, and we grow tomatoes, capsicums, beans, pumpkins, chillis, eggplants, watermelons, corn and much more. Mining plays a huge part in our community also as many of our parents work in the local coal mines, railway and coal port.
Our blog contains information about our learning and links to fantastic blogs, educational videos and learning programs. It is also the gateway to our Edublog student accounts. You will notice that we don’t include photos of our students as this is our State Education Policy. We do however post work samples so we can show our visitors the great work our students are doing in the library.
