Outdoor Education

The Outdoor Education Program at St Hilda’s begins in Year 3 and continues through to Year 12. All students in these years participate in the program at various locations throughout Western Australia.

The programs in the Junior School are aimed at promoting a sense of comfort in the Australian bush as well as developing basic camping skills.  The Senior School programs are designed to encourage adventure, personal growth and student led expeditions. 

In the Senior School, students are also offered the opportunity to participate in optional outdoor programs each year. These trips range from two to eleven days. Currently some of the trips go to Shark Bay, New Zealand, Coral Bay, Lancelin and Denmark. These optional trips are run during school holidays and over weekends. Fees are payable for these optional programs.

A range of before and after school programs are also available for our Senior School students. Students can enrol and participate in activities such as surfing, stand up paddle boarding and sailing. Fees are payable for the before and after school programs and the activities vary each term.

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is also available to students with guidance from our staff.
