Bundamba State Secondary College is proud to boast an industry-leading Newspaper Program, with our student-run Bundamba Post.
Founded in 2020 by former College Captain William Hartley, our college's newspaper provides a remarkable opportunity for all students interested in journalism, creative-writing, graphic design and more, to gain real-world experience and advance their skills for the workforce.
A multitude of remarkable individuals have been interviewed for feature articles in the Bundamba Post, from multi-millionaire company director Neil Southwell, to the Honourable Shayne Neumann MP (Member for Blair); both of whom are former BSSC students.
