Curriculum - Outdoor Education

We Love the Outdoors

 

At Calvin Christian School we have an exciting and comprehensive Outdoor Education program. This provides all students from Years 3 to 12 with an opportunity to live, work and relate with others in an appropriately challenging setting.

Outdoor Education begins in the Primary School and involves opportunities for students to enhance their understanding of the world around them. Field trips, excursions and visits to places of interest are part of every year group’s teaching and learning program. Year 5 and 6 students visit Canberra every second year, helping shape a sense of place, as well as building and developing leadership skills.

Years 10, 11 and 12 students have the opportunity to undertake formal study in the areas of Outdoor Education (Year 10), and Adventure Education and Outdoor Leadership (Year 11 & 12). Through extended participation, these courses provide the opportunity to acquire a greater understanding of planning and safe conduct, as well as the development of leadership skills.
