Year 5 Camp Tallong
Year 5 students attend this Outdoor Education experience as part of the school’s holistic development program. This camp is designed to focus on core IB Attitudes of Independence, Respect, Curiosity, Commitment, Confidence, Cooperation, Empathy and Enthusiasm to name but a few! The focus on these Attitudes using challenging and engaging adventurous activities in a wonderful bush environment, allows students to grow as individuals within a supportive team environment.
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!
CanoeingFollowing the flow of the river, we love to explore the waterways on our canoes. Working as a team, using our muscles and problem-solving together to reach our base for the night.
