The school camp program is an important aspect of our students’ education strategy. Low SES students are funded to attend where required. Camps give students the opportunity to forge friendships, take risks in a safe environment, and take up physical and academic challenges. For some students in Year 7, this is the first occasion that they have left the family home. The program targets the different maturation levels of students.
- Year 7 camp at Point Wolstoncroft provides team building and social bonding for students from 81 different primary schools.
- Year 9 ‘Great Aussie Bushcamp’ at Hawks Nest with ‘commando challenge’.
- Year 11 camp at Narrabeen. This is a three day crossroads camp including guest presenters and fun challenging activities in a safe and controlled environment.
- Band camp is an excellent curriculum camp for 100 students passionate about making music from all years in the school. It takes place at the end of Semester 1, before the Musicale Concert. Students attend with staff and music tutors and guest conductors and then return ready to play for the annual concert. In 2014 the camp was held at Stanwell Tops Conference Centre.
