Activities & Excursions

Regular class excursions, sleepovers, camps, swimming and visiting performances to the school are part of the total learning program and all students are expected to participate. Usually one excursion or performance per class is planned per term.

Written information about excursions and camps is sent home, together with consent and medical forms, to be signed and returned to the school.  Written permission is required to participate in off-site excursions.  

Over the primary years students are exposed to an incremental variety of Excursion / Outdoor Education experiences:

  • R/1 - Day excursion / tea at school
  • 2/3 – Day excursion / Sleepover at school
  • 4/5 - Overnight excursion to Adelaide
  • 6/7 - 3 night camp – alternating Aquatics / Adventure
  • R-7 Swimming lessons – a block of one week either at the beginning or end of the school year

At the beginning of each year, as part of the Student Personal and Health Care Information form, parents are asked give permission for their child to participate in  excursions within the local area (no greater than a 5km radius of the school). Parents will be advised by letter or diary note of these excursions, but will not be required to sign a separate consent and medical form each time.
