Class Camps

Each year, students from Years 6 to 12 go on camp, expedition or trip. These experiences are part of the school curriculum, designed to support personal growth and class cohesion, and enhance a culture of inclusion and empathy. 

Camp leaders and class teachers use teachable experiences to help students develop competencies that will shape a successful and happy life. This involves personal and team challenge where decision making is crucial, and helping students grow in their individual social ability, leadership, and physical fitness.
