Year 10 Expedition
The Year 10 Expedition is the culmination of the College Adventure Learning program with The Outdoor Education Group (OEG). It is a challenging but extremely rewarding experience for the students. Over the 8 days, the students will be assuming a great deal of autonomy for every part of their day, guided by the OEG Group Leaders and Penrhos College staff until the unaccompanied part of their expedition. This is a fantastic opportunity to put their prior experience and skills into play and, more importantly, to work collaboratively with other students and to show leadership.
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!
CulturalEncourage an understanding and appreciation for history and diversity by connecting students to a different way of life through storytelling, bushcraft and more.
InitiativesOur many initiatives can be large or small group activities on the land or water, encouraging social connection, negotiation, problem-solving and adaptability, all while having fun!
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.
Personal Reflection Time
