The Year 2 Sleep Out program achieved many goals both in the educational sphere as well as in the areas of personal and social skill development. Students will return to school to write and reflect on their camp experience. Coping with one’s personal care and hygiene, organising clothing and belongings, sharing a room with a fellow student and eating food prepared beyond the home are all sound learning opportunities. For our younger students it is the difference of a day’s learning outside the classroom that creates excitement and challenge.
At St John’s, our goal is to make school camps rewarding and enriching experiences for every student. We know that for some children, being away from their families can be challenging and perhaps daunting. However, we trust that you understand these experiences to be an important part of our curriculum, which cater to the social, physical and emotional development of your child.
Years 3 – 6 will have a three day outdoor education experience at Lake Ainsworth in Term 1 2017 (1 – 3 March). This is an important component of our program as it is an opportunity to make new friends, build the cohesion of the primary classes and have heaps of fun.
