In Outdoor Education, students will engage with natural environments to develop a range of transferable 21st century skills. In Outdoor Education A (Semester 1), students undertake a 3-day bushwalking camp and practical activities such as rock-climbing, while in Outdoor Education B (Semester 2) students undertake a 3-day kayaking journey and practical activities such as orienteering and caving. Both semesters include a focus on the development of skills in planning and preparation, risk and safety management, conservation and sustainable practices, teamwork and decision-making, reflection and evaluation, and technical outdoor skills. Students build positive relationships with each other, connect with nature and engage in personal growth and development.
