Year 9 students undertake a 24-day outdoor residential education Environment and Field Studies Program that covers elements of Strands 1, 2 and 4 of the Stage 5 PDHPE Syllabus. This Unit provides students with an opportunity to experience an outdoor residential environment and learn life skills away from their usual suburban routine. Students learn to communicate, work and live together in an environment much different to their home. It requires them to strengthen their coping abilities and deal with real-life situations arising from the need to work effectively in a routine environment while living with other students. Students participate in a range of both challenging and rewarding outdoor activities, aimed to develop them in all ways of life. Activities include hiking, navigation, canoeing, various challenge-based activities and class lessons.
These camps have a maximum of 44 students per rotation.
Parents are encouraged to visit the Campus and spend the day with their son on the nominated Sunday of his residency.
