Outdoor Education

Building on the experiences from ‘The Edge’ program in Year 9, the Outdoor Education Program in the Senior School aims to develop the leadership capabilities and teamwork skills of students. The focus is about allowing young people to challenge themselves and to see what role they play as individuals in the year level cohort and as a group… turning the ‘Me’ into a ‘We’.

The Year 11 Emu Gully Leadership Camp has long been a highlight for many students in our community. Its focus on developing character through concepts based on the ANZAC spirit has proven to be the making of some of our young people. The camp’s central concept is based on ideas such as courage, mateship, perseverance and sacrifice.

The Year 12’s participate in whole cohort leadership development, goal setting and reflection activities at the start of the school year. The aim of this is to provide an opportunity for all students to come together and bring into focus the hopes and pathways for their final year of secondary education.
