School Camps

Year 6 Camp: 

The camp is held every year at Tallebudgera Outdoor Education School in Term 1.  It provides opportunities for students to experience learning in an environment other than the school or their homes.  Camping experiences may enable students to develop outdoor recreation skills and interests.  Camps also support the school’s curriculum by enabling investigation of aspects of society that would not be possible within the school.  Camps provide opportunities for students to develop independence and effective interpersonal skills.  Camps allow the school to motivate, reward and celebrate positive student behaviour and effort.
