Camps and excursions

Camps

Students from Years 5 - 6 are offered the opportunity to participate in school camps.


Our Year 5 students go to Mapleton, in the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast for two nights.  They are accommodated in air-conditioned, carpeted cabins, all in the same building. 

They participate in activities such as swimming in the rock pools, canoeing, suspension bridges, indoor rock-climbing and flying fox - and that's just in the daytime!  Night time brings activities such as dancing, party games, concerts or mock olympics.  This is a safe, ideal first school camp.

Our Year 6 students are extremely fortunate to attend Tallebudgera Beach School on the beautiful Gold Coast.  These children will ride tandem-bikes, go tobogganing or sailing, go bodyboarding, hike around Burleigh Mountain and experience many other wonderful outdoor education and leadership activities, right next to the beach.

Excursions

Year Level teachers are encouraged to organise two excursions and two incursions for their students each year.  These excursions are to enhance what is being taught in the classroom.

Parents receive a Term Letter at the beginning of each term.  This details the organised excursions or incursions and their costs for the term, meaning that only one payment needs to be made and one permission form completed.  Our parents find this very convenient. For more information about how to make payments. please click here.

Excursions are many and varied:- the ATSI Centre at Inala, Downfall Creek, Wivenhoe Dam, St Helena Island, Nudgee Beach Environmental Centre, Samford Historical Village, the Sciencentre and the Moreton Region Recycling Centre are but a few.

Incursions


Our teachers organise a variety of activities for children within their year levels.  Professor Maths is a frequent visitor, as are the Financial Literacy representatives, the Nudgee Beach staff, the Spinal Injury Education Team and the Environmental educators from Moreton Bay Regional Council.  Some, like the Life Ed Van and African Drumming, are whole school incursions, while others, such as Human Relationships Education, are for selected year levels.  There may be some cost attached to these visits and parents will be notified about this in the Term Letter.
