Outdoor Education

The program of compulsory Outdoor Education camps is viewed as an integral part of the College’s curriculum at Year 7 through to Year 9. The Outdoor Education program aims to provide our students with enjoyable learning situations to promote aspects of personal development such as self-esteem, resourcefulness, leadership, tolerance, determination and responsibility. They focus on trust, teamwork and co-operation, while developing and encouraging positive attitudes toward environmental appreciation and protection and the encouragement of conservation practices.

It is College policy therefore that each student attends these camps and activities and non-attendance will only be permitted in serious circumstances such as in the case of genuine prolonged illness.
