Programs: Outdoor Education

Outdoor Education is available to students across all year levels. It is incorporated into the Junior school’s curriculum during the Year 7 and 8 camps. Students are able to appreciate their natural environment while participating in a variety of outdoor activities such as cycling, hiking, and outdoor survival. Fish Care-led sessions aimed at teaching how to fish responsibly, group sandcastle building competitions, Bush Tucker and Aboriginal painting are some of our students’ favourite camp activities.
