Outdoor Education at St Hilda’s is a comprehensive sequential program designed to instil a passion for the outdoors and the environment in our students. Students are involved in year level curriculum programs from Year 2 – 10. These experiences are developed to engage students in the environment, personal growth, wellbeing, leadership, independence, interpersonal skills, cultural awareness and resilience. Each program has a specific focus to help develop students outside of the classroom.
In addition to the Outdoor Education experiences that form part of the curriculum, students have the opportunity to participate in the Optional cocurricular opportunities. These optional programs are designed to explore outdoor activities and environments that students have shown an interest in. These programs range from before school and after school activities to expeditions run during School holidays. Below you can see what options each year level has and some specific information regarding each optional pursuit.
