Learning in the Real World
The College Council recognizes that to implement and enhance the curriculum of the College it is necessary for students/staff to journey outside the College premises. Camps and excursions provide opportunities for students to learn in the real world and to build personal confidence and team skills.
The nature and extent of camps and excursions conducted by our College will depend on the Educational Programs/Policies approved by College Council after input from relevant Committees and Key Learning Areas.
Camps and excursions may be for: specific classes related to curriculum investigations in a Learning Areas, Sport Education, Physical Education, Outdoor Education, Year Level Camps, Language and Cultural International Tours, VCAL, Adventure Activities, Social Activities, Music Tours and Band Festivals.
