Year 6 students will be going to Great Aussie Bush Camp at Tea Gardens from Wednesday 11th Decemberer to Friday 13th December, 2019 (2 nights, 3 days).

Nutritious and well-balanced meals including vegetiarian and halal are prepared by full-time catering staff. All students are actively involved in lessons throughout the day. After the evening meal all students are involved in various supervised recreation activities until bedtime. Your child will participate in some of the following activities: Rock Climbing, Archery, Bush walking, Canoeing, High Ropes, Raft building, Bush craft and much more. All centre staff are qualified teachers.  They are also trained in Outdoor Education and First Aid.  The centre has a fair and consistent discipline policy. Students will be removed from activities if their behaviour is not acceptable. The cost of the outdoor education program (including transport) is $330.00. This can be paid off in installments or a total payment of $330.00 can be made. All money must be paid by Thursday 27th  November 2019.
