Extra Curricular Activities

Excursions (Off-site) / Incursions (On-site)  & Extra-Curricular activities

Throughout the year, teachers plan excursions, incursions and extra-curricular activities to support and extend the learning in the classroom.  For legal reasons, written parent permission is required so your child can attend excursions and extra-curricular activities.

Camps

Outdoor Education is a highly valued and very important aspect of the curriculum and your child’s development.  It is an expectation that all children attend camp.  Our camp structure is as follows:

Year 4 – Oasis Camp, Mt. Evelyn

Year 5 – Phillip Island Adventure Park

Year 6 – Canberra

Home Learning

As part of a comprehensive and balanced curriculum within our school, Home Learning is seen as one way of supporting and fostering life-long learning and connecting families with the learning of their children.   Therefore, Home Learning should be:

  • appropriate to the student’s skill level and age;
  • purposeful, meaningful and relevant to the curriculum;
  • interesting, challenging and when appropriate open ended;
  • reviewed by teachers with feedback and support provided; and
  • balanced with a range of recreational, family and cultural activities.
