SACE Stage 2

20 credits


Students connect with natural environments through three 3-day journeys (eg bushwalking, rock climbing and kayaking camps). The purpose of each journey is to develop a range of transferable skills. Students develop skills in planning and preparation, risk and safety management, conservation and sustainable practices. There is also a strong focus on teamwork, leadership, reflection, evaluation, and technical outdoor skills.

Students build positive relationships with each other, connect with nature, and explore various perspectives. They reflect on and evaluate their own learning, explore the impacts of human behaviour on ecosystems, and engage in personal growth and development.
