School Camps & Bike Education

School camps are part of the education program for Years 3 to 6 students. They give children the opportunity to experience living away from the family; to learn about different places and practise skills learned at school.

 

 

Students in Years 3 & 4 participate in the bike education program that prepares them to be safe on the roads when bicycle riding. The program culminates in a group ride out to and overnight stay at Munjarra Outdoor Centre situated at Sandy Point, Lake Glenmaggie. Whilst at Munjarra students participate in a variety of adventure activities as well as honing their riding skills at nearby Blore’s Hill Mountain Bike Circuit.

The Grade 5 & 6 students experience a biannual arrangement where one year they visit Canberra and Camp Coonawarra (near Dargo) the next.

Cost, venue and availability of staff are key factors when organizing the camp.

Excursions

Excursions are an important part of a child’s education. Some are short walks to see our town. Others are taken on buses to see places, people and things of interest and educational value.
No child can be taken on an out-of-town excursion unless written permission and authority to take emergency action in case of illness or accidents is received.
