Year 10 Outdoor Education
John XXIII College
The Year 10 Outdoor Education program has been designed as an assessment expedition for the students who are studying Outdoor Education as part of the WA curriculum. Students will have the opportunity to put their classroom theory into practice over the 4 days, and approach the challenges of the program as a cohesive and supportive group. The OEG model of “Explore, Reflect, Wonder” will underpin this experience.
AbseilingDescending a rock face or a climbing tower, we love the views from the top and the courage we see as students aim for their personal best and encourage one another.
BushwalkingBe it a day's hike or a short walk to camp, bushwalking engages all our senses allowing us to explore nature and our place within it. And we always find something exciting along the way!
CampingCamping out in tents is our speciality! We love telling stories around the campfire, looking up at the night sky and creating memories that will last a lifetime!
High RopesOur high ropes course delivers an exciting challenge with students setting their own goals and developing confidence, determination and decision-making skills.
CookingFor many, this is the first time they will be cooking and preparing their own meals. Some discover a new passion while developing healthy habits and self-belief.
