Outdoor Education

The great outdoors encourages problem-solving and risk navigation – which are both important for child development. But not only that, healthier and happier children do better in school. Students are supported and guided in working together to meet individual and group challenges while respecting the environment and understanding the need for a sustainable future.

YEARS 3 & 4

Students are introduced to camp activities in a safe but challenging environment. Students sleep in cabins overnight and partake in a variety of activities during the day that develop teamwork.

YEARS 5 & 6

The camp experience is extended to include overnight in tents and students preparing their own meals. The level of challenge is increased with canoeing, abseiling and navigational challenges included in the program. Students develop leadership and communication skills.

YEARS 7 & 8

Students attend a five-day camp where the focus is on friendships and unity. For students new to the School, this is an integral part of getting to know their peers and House communities.


Students are challenged with new skills and experiences, such as caving and hiking. The camp has a journey aspect where students develop a sense of place and connection to the land around them. All groups are accompanied by experienced Outdoor Education staff.


Students participate in a rigorous expedition that is the pinnacle of the School’s Outdoor Education program. The expedition includes an extensive range of activities that involve a high level of commitment and challenge, such as hiking, mountain biking and paddling.
