Outdoor education


​Outdoor Education is a Vocational Education Training (VET) course offered in Years 11 and 12. At completion students will attain a Certificate II in Outdoor Education.

Outdoor Education involves students learning in, about and through physical, recreational or sporting activity. Learning experiences in this area are designed to allow students to develop as increasingly self directed, interdependent/independent lifelong learners.

This course reflects the multidimensional nature of Health, Outdoor and Physical Education in the context of a diverse and changing society. These areas engage young people in developing active, balanced and healthy lifestyles. Participation in a wide range of activities provides opportunities to develop, practise and apply appropriate skills and knowledge in varied and challenging environments.

The curriculum enables young people to develop personal, interpersonal and physical skills, whilst promoting the whole person through intellectual, social, emotional and physical activities.
