Outdoor Education
Semester 1
Outdoor Education
In first semester, our Outdoor Education students undertook a range of camps and activities. SACE Stage 2 students participated in a kayaking journey to Hindmarsh Island and Coorong National Park and a rock-climbing camp based at Onkaparinga River National Park. Stage 1 students participated in a bushwalking journey through Deep Creek Conservation Park and other activities, which included rock-climbing at Morialta Conservation Park.

Through these experiences, students have continued to develop a range of transferable skills in planning, leadership, collaboration, risk management, and practical skills in packing, shelter, cooking, paddling, climbing, rigging, navigation and others. Along with building relationships with each other, students have further developed their connection with the natural world, growing their understanding of how they are connected to it and developing strategies in sustainable practice.

In second semester, Stage 2 students will undertake a bushwalking journey to Mt Remarkable National Park in the Flinders Ranges while a new group of Stage 1 students will paddle the Murray River on a kayaking journey, and develop a range of skills in navigation and orienteering.
