Incursions, Excursions and School Camp

In conjunction with the educational program, children will have the opportunity to take part in school excursions, incursions and camps. These experiences provide opportunities for rich learning and engagement in the community and different environments. Some excursions, incursions and camps have a cost factor which is covered by the individual student curriculum fee. Parents are notified of all the necessary details prior to the incursion/excursion/camp.
