Prep them well for VCE

Senior School Camps

The Senior School program does not include camps as part of the course structure. Some subjects may involve trips and overnight stays or outdoor camping as part of the curriculum requirement (such as Outdoor Education and VCE Physical Education).

However the College does hold a camp for Student Leaders at the start of the year and organises some optional trips for Senior Students; these are usually held during College breaks.

Leadership Camp

At the beggining of the school year the Senior School Student Executive Senior House Leaders attend a two-day Leadership Training Camp.
