The Outdoor Education program provides a unique and unforgettable learning and life experience.
The program is presented in a sequential
manner with particular emphasis on the balance between environmental
education, personal development and adventure.
Students face significant challenges beyond
those possible in a suburban school. These challenges not only include
exposure to some of the most exciting of physical skills but also
include taking responsibility for themselves, the community and the
Participation in the Outdoor Education program enables students to learn
and exercise life skills such as leadership, teamwork and tolerance.
Key aspects of the program include
developing outdoor and low impact camping skills, leadership training,
problem solving, social interaction, group cooperation, self-confidence,
an understanding of ecological systems and promoting self-awareness and
an appreciation of one’s unique strengths and weaknesses.
Each program attempts
to not only develop these particular skills but includes a community
service and cultural understanding component that ensures all students
have both an enjoyable and satisfying social experience in the most
magnificent of surrounds.
The outdoor activities program takes place
primarily in the tranquil environment of Scott’s Creek Outdoor Centre, a
College facility located on a secluded but idyllic branch of the River
Murray near Morgan.
Our experienced and qualified staff provide
a supportive environment in which students can feel comfortable and
secure throughout their stay. Pastoral Care teachers from the Kent Town
campus accompany their students on these programs and give special
attention to the well being and development of the individual.
In short the program is fun, challenging and unforgettable.
