Education Outside the Classroom

Students may attend school camps and experience subject trips and class visits to events and venues off the school property as a part of their learning.  Senior Physical Education courses may offer Outdoor Education at Year 12 and Year 13 for those with a strong interest in this area.   Year 13 students attend camp and Year 13 prefects also participate in Leadership Training Camps.    Departments organise field trips and other out of class activities in order to fulfil work requirements of the syllabus in subjects such as Geography, Science, Biology, Tourism and Physical Education.
