Exploration Adventurous Journey - Jumping Creek Reserve

Well done juniors on their first adventurous journey. They were excellent throughout the day walking carefully with their packs over different challenging terrain.

Hike and High Ropes - September '18

At the high ropes students realised what perceived risks were and what they felt like whilst waiting to drop from the 15m platform. There was no way they would fall to the ground, but actually leaping off and relying on the harness system was pretty hard enact.

Warrandyte State Park Journey

It has been a challenging couple of days in various ways for the students. Walking in the rain with full hike pack created some hazards on the slippery tracks. All students coped very well and developed their navigation techniques.

Cathedrals Ranges Hike Camp

What a Camp!!!! This was certainly the "icing on the cake" for the groups’ semester's experience in outdoor ed. I was extremely impressed at their concentration and support of each other’s learning levels and abilities throughout the two days.

Year 12 Outdoor Environment Studies Baw Baw Experience

Our year 12 group ventured up to both sides of the Baw Baw National Park; the side which was the watch catchment area leading down to the Thompson Reservoir and the other side the Baw Baw Ski resort. Our focus was to investigate the health of these environments; analysing and evaluating the impacts.

1000 Steps and Tree Tops Adventure

by Clare Rayner On Thursday 10th May our middle school outdoor ed group got rugged up and prepared for the expected wet, cold and windy conditions. The students were excellent! They were very well organised and was ready for all conditions. We were extremely lucky, we walked up and down the 1000 steps before the dark, showery weather started. We saw Lyre birds, cockatoos and a variety of nature proving that we were experiencing a healthy environment. The students continued to face their challenges as we climbed at the tree tops centre in Belgrave. There are a variety of heights and climbs the students could tackle from Green through to the Black lines. All students tried very hard and conquered the majority of obstacles on the black lines. Great job by all – looking forwards to the next trip; our Cathedrals overnight experience.
