Camps and Excursions
Our school provides an outstanding camps program for our students, focusing on developing the personal and interpersonal skills of each student while learning academic content along the way. Our current camp program includes the following camps:
- Grade 3 /4 Camp: A five day camp at the 15 Mile Creek outdoor school centring on the twin themes of “Challenge and Grow” and “Knowing Nature”.
- Grade 5/6: Alternating yearly camps at Canberra and Ballarat, focussing on developing knowledge of the origins and development of our political system and life during the gold rush as well as the tensions that culminated in the Eureka Stockade.
- Years Prep/1/2 – overnight at school for Grade Prep, 1&2 held late in the year.
- Elective Camps: We also provide elective camps for our Grade 5/6 students, including our 3 Day Bike Hike during which students ride 180km along the Great Victorian Rail Trail and our Energy Breakthrough camp during which students compete at the Energy Breakthrough event in Maryborough. Also offered to selected students are opportunities to attend Somers and Woorabinda Camps plus various leadership camps.
