Camps & Excursions


Excursions are learning experiences which are not possible in a classroom but complement  learning. They are a chance for students to experience broader learning opportunities that will support and enhance their learning within a curriculum area.

Prior to an excursion, permission forms are sent home with an explanation of the excursion and its educational purpose. All costs are included in the school fees.

Years Five and Six students attend a three day camp. On camp, our School Leaders experience leadership and team building activities which may include; canoeing, abseiling, archery, bush skills, team initiatives, giant swing, climbing wall and more. 

Year Four Students also participat e in a three day camp. On camp, they learn about collaboration and problem solving through a variety of outdoor education activities that may include; orienteering, team challenges, adventure rotations, trust building activities and more.

Camps offer excellent opportunities for children to learn about and appreciate our environment, but also provide an opportunity for developing independence and enhancing social skills. Camps give students a chance to learn more about themselves and their friends in a different learning environment. ​
