Years 3 and 4 are such an exciting period in our students’ development! They begin to earn their independence and are introduced to responsibility in a range of contexts. We encourage creative thinking and present an integrated program that remains grounded in a Biblical worldview. Our passionate teachers scaffold, support, prompt, encourage and conference with their students as ideas of a more abstract nature are introduced and students gain confidence in their own abilities. Individuals are valued and respected and there is an expectation that each student will work hard to reach their own potential.
The Years 3 and 4 camps take place together in a bush setting. The purpose of the Stage 2 camp is to develop positive peer networks, be involved in team building exercises, develop resilience and co-operation skills.
This camp takes place in two parts. Year 4 spend three days and two nights at camp, while Year 3 enjoying spending two days and one night at camp. This gradual introduction to College camping helps our students to adjust smoothly to being away from home and helps to develop the skills and responsibilities desired.
The Year 4 experience has the added excitement of two nights away from home. It focuses further on life skills and responsibilities by completing tasks of self-care and chores needed at the camp (washing up, making beds, setting tables etc).
