We appreciate the diversity and richness of human potential and believe that students who have an opportunity to develop their talents and interests outside the classroom are more likely to engage positively in their learning.
Learning experiences outside the classroom also contribute to the development of character, skill competencies and a sense of community as expressed in the framing of our river charter.
Extensive use of field trips, camping experiences, leadership development camps and a diverse range of sporting, cultural and leadership opportunities complement learning in the classroom.
