Bwgcolman Community School is nestled in between the beach and the mountains in beautiful Palm Island, situated 70km across the water from Townsville North Queensland.
The Bwgcolman (Bukaman) name came about from the history of the community. Aborigines from about 42 tribes were re-settled on Palm Island in order to remove them from pastoral land.
Our school changed it's name to Bwgcolman Community School in 1994 to better reflect the needs and aspirations of the community. We have around 400 students.
