Outdoor Education

Each year, all students engage in some type of Outdoor education activity designed to extend their school day experience beyond the limitations of the school environment.

Students in Prep - Year 2 will undertake activities that extend the normal school day and include such activities as shared breakfasts / afterschool activities and meals/ late school finishes.

Students in Years 4, 5 & 6 are involved in various camp programs throughout the school year.



  • Year 6 students undertake a 5 Day Camp to Canberra
  • Year 5 students undertake a 3 day outdoor adventure Camp in the Dandenong Ranges
  • Year 4 students undertake a 3 day Camp next to the Otway State Forest 
  • Year 3 students undertake a 3 day beach focus Camp on the Mornington Peninsula

Year 5  Camp Year 5 Camp

Details regarding each of the Camps are distributed to families in the term prior to the Camp.

Our Camp outcomes relate to forming relationships, bonding, developing friendships, teamwork and outdoor adventure activities.

As camp activities contribute to the child's overall development and are an integral part of the school curriculum at this level, attendance is compulsory for all students. Camps involve an additional cost for families. These costs are charged to your School Fees account and can be paid off throughout the year.
