The Great Outdoors

‘Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, drink the wild air…’

RALPH WALDO EMERSON

Students participate in outdoor education from Years 5 to 10 in a comprehensive program managed by a specialist outdoor education teacher.

 

Middle School students in Years 5, 6 and 7 are introduced to outdoor/environmental education camps at three different activity-centered, community-based campsites. These camps involve a series of group challenges within the context of a general theme, linking to the curriculum for each year group.

The Year 8 and 9 camps are designed to challenge boys both physically and emotionally.

 

The more experienced Year 10 students choose an expedition at an appropriately challenging level, developing competence in dealing with and travelling through the natural environment. These expedition opportunities have an emphasis on safety and organisation while enabling our boys to experience some of WA’s more remote, diverse and stunning geographic locations.
