Outdoor learning engages students in practical and active educational experiences which take place in natural settings beyond the classroom. Through interaction with the environment, students foster a connection to the natural world, promoting wellbeing and sustainability of individuals, society and our environment.

We believe that students need adventure. School camps are an integral part of the learning journey for young people, helping them to learn more about their own character and strengthen relationships with their peers.

The Outdoor Learning Programme features an overnight camp at Year 7, and a 4-day Daborra camp at Year 9.

Daborra


'Daborra', the Yorta Yorta word meaning footpath, is a stimulating and empowering experience undertaken at Year 9. Students embark upon a challenging and rewarding 4 day camp experience away from the distractions of the modern world, eating well prepared healthy food, and tackling various adventure activities.

The aim for students is to develop new skills in the following areas:

  • Leadership
  • Teamwork
  • Problem Solving
  • Building Social Skills
  • Perseverance
  • Resilience
  • Building relationships
  • Respect and responsibility for self and other

As well as these, gain new insights into their abilities, whilst discovering more about their own potential and perseverance.

    Daborra truly is a highlight of College life.
