Kids vs wild

Kids vs wild excursion

PDHPE, Maths, CCT

Working as a team of four, Stage 3 students orientate maps, navigate with a compass, solve riddles, unravel clues and crack the code to complete an outdoor challenge course. Construct a shelter, ‘go bush’ and face their fears.

This adventure-style excursion builds resilience, team work and problem solving skills and is a great fun way to finish the year.

Students use critical and creative thinking and build personal and social capability. They work collaboratively and constructively in a variety of situations.

This program is designed to stretch and challenge students outside the classroom, this action-packed day builds student bonds, displays hidden talents and consolidates leadership skills.
