Camps and excursions

During the year class excursions are organised to enhance classroom learning opportunities. Students in years 6 may also attend school camps. We encourage all children to participate in these events. Costs will be incurred by parents for these activities. You will be provided with information and associated costs in sufficient time.

To be invited to attend camps / excursions students must fulfil the following criteria.

• School assessment, independent class work and homework is of a satisfactory standard.

• Students are observed to be responsible during school daily operations (in play and work situations).

• Students follow directions willingly.

• Students’ overall school behaviour is considered as being satisfactory.

• Students indicate they will abide by school, camp or excursion behaviour expectations.

Camps support the school’s curriculum by enabling investigation of aspects of society that would not be possible within the school.  Camps provide opportunities for students to develop independence and effective interpersonal skills.  Camps allow the school to motivate, reward and celebrate positive student behaviour and effort.

At Mundingburra State School, camp provides opportunities for students to:

• extend and expand learning about the curriculum

• celebrate the importance of an active lifestyle by developing skills and interests in outdoor activities

• develop attitudes that will promote responsible behaviours in caring for the environment

• provide learning experiences that will promote:

o respect

o co-operation

o responsibility

o care and compassion

o honesty

o commitment

• provide problem-solving strategies and responsible attitudes towards personal and group safety

• encourage students to make decisions and reflect on personal well-being and the well-being of others
