Compulsory Camps are organised for Years
4 and 5. An optional educational trip to Canberra is organised for Year
6 in the last week of school in Term 2.
Year Four and Five students attend camps in Term Three.
As the children are being introduced to new roles and responsibilities for
their year level the camp is designed to enhance the student’s awareness of the
skills of communication, co-operation and good decision making.
There are several different activities offered to
students, archery, rock climbing, team initiatives, swimming and canoeing.
These provide the students with the opportunity to develop and strengthen
skills in these activities but also to enhance their co-operative team skills.
Year 6 Camp
In Term One, Year 6 attend a three day/ two night camp providing the students with the opportunity to experience and solve personal challenges and participate in group decision making processes. They learn to be responsible for one another as well as trust each other as they guide a partner through the high rope and low rope courses. The students experience goal setting and face personal challenges in abseiling and flying fox. Group Initiatives is a terrific activity which fosters cooperation and decision making.
