Year 7 Outdoor Education Experience 

In Term 1 2024, Year 7 students embarked on an unforgettable journey during their Outdoor Education Experience at our Tallong Campus in the Southern Highlands. This annual tradition saw our students engaged in a myriad of activities, fostering friendships, enhancing resilience and learning in new and dynamic environments.

The Outdoor Education Experience offered students a diverse range of experiences. From exhilarating mountain bike riding to navigating high and low ropes courses, each activity presented opportunities for personal growth and teamwork. As students conquered challenges together, they not only built lasting friendships but also developed resilience as they moved out of their comfort zones.

Service and reflection were integral components of the experience, reminding students of the importance of giving back to our community and taking time for introspection. Engaging in Indigenous Education sessions provided valuable insights into our rich cultural heritage, fostering understanding and appreciation among the participants.

Canoeing along serene waters and hiking through trails allowed students to connect with nature. These outdoor adventures not only instilled a sense of stewardship for the environment but also provided moments of tranquillity and self-discovery.

One of the highlights of the camp was the unforgettable campout under the starlit sky. Gathered around a crackling campfire, students shared stories, laughter and marshmallows, forging memories that will last a lifetime. 

The overarching focus of the camp was to nurture holistic development in our students. By immersing them in diverse experiences, we aimed to cultivate resilience, foster friendships and ignite a passion for lifelong learning and the outdoors. Through these shared experiences, students not only grew academically but also emotionally and socially.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the dedicated staff, from both Tallong and classroom teachers at the College, who made this enriching experience possible. Their unwavering commitment to the wellbeing and growth of our students is truly appreciated.

With our Year 7 students back to school, we look forward to witnessing the positive impact of their camp experiences on their personal and academic journeys. May they continue to embody the spirit of adventure, resilience and positive friendships that define the Santa Sabina College community.
