Excursions are a means of providing experiences which are not possible in a classroom but which complement a learning program. They are not optional extras so every child is expected to attend. Permission forms are sent home with an explanation of the excursion and its education purpose. All costs are covered in the fees. Permission slips must be returned for a child to attend an excursion.
Years 5 and 6 attend a three day camp. This year our school leadership group will attend camp at QCCC Mapleton where they will experience canoeing, abseiling, archery, bush skills, team initiatives, giant swing, climbing wall and more. Our Year 4 students will attend a three day camp at Luther Heights where they will experience orienteering, team challenge, body boarding, adventure rotation, trust building activities and more.
Not only do camps offer excellent opportunities for children to learn about, appreciate and respect our environment, but also they provide an opportunity for developing independence and skills in social interaction. No child will be excluded from an excursion or camp through genuine inability to cover the cost. Contact the Principal if there is a need to discuss this further.
