Intercollege Sport: Each Thursday afternoon is set aside for students to play sport, as there are no regular classes offered at this time. Competitions in a wide variety of sports are arranged each term on a home and away basis.
One Day Carnivals: Held at various times throughout the year, eg. softball, soccer, hockey, triathlon, Australian rules, waterpolo, athletics.
Recreational Sports: Held weekly during school time, eg. badminton, volleyball.
I think the billy has just boiled! Anyone for tea? Bring your cup over here, have you seen the sponnies? Can someone get some more wood! Are we there yet? No, it's just over that next rise.
Outdoor Ed is the living subject area. Outdoor Ed students embark on a journey that takes them back to the basics of human existence. Eating sleeping and walking can take on a new importance. It's an opportunity to challenge yourself, see beautiful places and do amazing things. There is a wide range of activities to take part in that emphasise skill acquisition, resilience, interpersonal relationships, health and wellbeing.
Outdoor Ed is not competitive, it's just a fun way to get new skills and see great parts of Australia's natural environment. It is also an opportunity for stress relief from busy lives and demands of year 11 and 12.
