Outdoor activity offers students opportunities to build skills and confidence as they take part in limited-risk outdoor activities, suited to their age and physical capabilities.
Many field trips from Grade 5 upwards offer students the opportunities to take part in outdoor activities such as hiking, high-ropes courses, climbing, canoeing or river-rafting.
