Outdoor Education

Outdoor Education is an experiential process of learning by doing, where students develop, apply, and reflect upon real world skills that will serve them well for life.

  • The Outdoor Education program is designed to develop resilience, independence, collaboration, problem-solving skills, and leadership abilities.

 

  • Students participate in experiential learning in outdoor environments, applying their knowledge of sustainability, safety, and navigation.

 

  • Students learn about camp craft, including menu planning, cooking on a Trangia stove, use of rucksacks and sleeping in tents. Key camping experiences include bushwalking in the Deep Creek Conservation Park and Mt. Remarkable National Park.

 

  • Students will also participate in kayaking, indoor rock-climbing, hiking, orienteering and stand-up paddleboarding (SUP).

 

  • Outdoor Education also has strong links to the annual Snowsports Tour.
