Year 8 Adventure Learning
The Year 8 Adventure Learning program at Penrhos College takes the students to the next level of their outdoor education journey. From our base in Karridale, the girls will again operate in smaller groups, taking on some greater challenges than they experienced in Year 7. Throughout their time with us they will be supported and guided by our OEG Group Leaders and Penrhos College staff who will assist in transferring this learning back to school and home. The “Explore, Reflect, Wonder” philosophy will underpin this experience.
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!
CavingCaving stirs adventure and excitement, allowing us to overcome new obstacles together through an inspiring new world and a fresh perspective.
High RopesOur high ropes course delivers an exciting challenge with students setting their own goals and developing confidence, determination and decision-making skills.
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.
