During Term 3, Year 8 students participate in a six day program based at the Hattah-Kulkyne National Park in North Western Victoria.
- Bush cooking.
- Navigation and orienteering.
- Expedition (five days).
- Initiative activities.
- Study of a semi-arid environment.
- Learning about the environment, yourself and being part of a small group community.

This aspect of personal and social learning is an important element of Outdoor Education.
