City of Gold Coast provides information, support and visits to schools who want to include Council’s role, work and governance structure in the curriculum. We also run programs to engage and educate young people about Council, and to recognise the contribution that children and young people make to our community. Our current programs and services are:
Gold Coast Libraries: In-service support about the City’s library services is available for teachers, as are library orientation sessions for classes. Contact your library for details.
Junior Council: This two-year program aims to provide high school students with an understanding and experience of active citizenship and foster a sense of being connected with the community. See our YouTube video about the program.
For information about City resources to use as part of the curriculum, or to request a visit to your school by City officers, visit our School-based education programs page.
City of Gold Coast hosts school visits to the Council Chambers in Bundall. To arrange a visit, contact the Corporate Communication branch on 07 5581 6877.
