Camps, Excursions and Activities
Excursions and camps are regarded as being an important part of the school curriculum, and students are encouraged to attend. Details of the program are sent to parents concerned before the activity. The Excursion Levy covers all excursions, incursions and actiivities during the school year except photographs, Aquatics Programme, Year 7 windcheaters, Year 7 Graduation, camps or sleepovers. Separate invoices will be sent home for these activities.

Parents sign a consent form and provide the necessary medical information. All school fees must be paid prior to participating in camps. Class teachers manage the school’s excursion levy. Camps are a separate cost not included in the excursion levy. Teachers will notify parents and caregivers in writing of any costs associated with planned camps well in advance of the dates of the camp.

The day before an excursion the class teacher will advise parents of any alternative arrangements made if the projected weather forecast for the day of the excursion is forecast on the Bureau of Meteorology website to be 36 degrees or higher (e.g. travel by car to and from swimming/aquatics, cancellation of an excursion). Excursions in air conditioned transport to air conditioned venues need not be affected by these guidelines. Alternative arrangements may need to be made to modify the programme at a camp.

Aquatics/Swimming is deemed by the Department of Education and Childhood Development to be a suitable hot weather activity. Aquatics/Swimming will only be cancelled if the circumstances are deemed unsafe by the Centre's Instructor in Charge.

Alternative arrangements may need to be made to modify the programme at a camp.
