SACE Stage 2

20 credits


Stage 2 Outdoor Education students connect with natural environments through three 3-day journeys (eg bushwalking, rockclimbing and kayaking camps) to develop a range of transferable 21st century skills.
Students focus on the development of skills in planning and preparation, risk and safety management, conservation and sustainable practices, teamwork, leadership and decision-making, reflection and evaluation, and technical and self-reliant outdoor skills.
Students build positive relationships with each other, connect with nature, explore various perspectives, reflect on and evaluate their own learning, explore the impacts of human behaviour on ecosystems, and engage in personal growth and development.
