Brisbane Urban Environmental Education Centre is a Department of Education school committed to creating connected global citizens who possess the knowledge and skills necessary to respond to the challenges we all face on our journey towards a more sustainable future.
Our committed, inspiring and responsive staff operate from our centre, at Newmarket State School, and a variety of locations in and around our beautiful river city. By making meaningful connections between the natural and built environments found in our diverse locality, we hope to bring learning to life and encourage students, parents, the community and our collaborative partners to develop an appreciation of what makes our place so special.
The City of Brisbane has a rich, sometimes hidden, history and a wide variety of urban, marine and bush environments which are well suited to our programs that focus on the curriculum areas of Geography, History and Science. Innovative and engaging programs and a passionate staff help to connect these varied settings to curriculum in a uniquely relevant way that makes the most of our natural curiosity.
We are especially proud of the relationships we have developed with local schools, students and the community, as these lie at the very heart of what we do and what we value as a centre.
