Students in Year 8 will experience a broad range of challenging, hands-on experiences. They will develop social and leadership skills, build teamwork and develop friendships. They will be immersed in the natural beauty of Biloela Bush Camp in the Southern Highlands. All the while having fun and embedding memories for a lifetime.
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.
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!
OrienteeringThere's nothing more exciting than learning a new skill! Orienteering teaches us to read a map and a compass, gauge distances and provides lots of great learning opportunities.
Raft BuildingWorking together, students design and build a raft out of available materials then test it out on the water, raft building is loved by students of all ages.
