The children in Year 5 and 6 participate in a camp experience as part of the curriculum provided at St Agatha's.
These camps provide opportunities for developing team building, peer support and engaging in extra curricular activities like canoeing, rock climbing, leap of faith, survivor challenge and team games.
The Year 5 students participate in a two day/three night day camp program at the Mapleton Qld Conference and Camping Centre, set amongst the rainforest in the Sunshine Coast Region. QCCC Mapleton is one of Queensland's finest Outdoor Education classrooms. Some of the activities include: archery, abseiling, canoeing, indoor rock climbing, ziplines, leath of faith, giant swings, bush skills and team initiatives.
Our Year 6 students travel to Canberra for 5 days/4nights to visit many attractions to support their unit of work on democracy and leadership including: Old Parliament House, Parliament House, The National Museum and War Memorial. The costs of attending the camps and visiting Canberra are in addition to the school fees paid.
Class Teachers organise appropriate excursions for their students that will further enhance a topic they are covering. Parents are always encouraged to be available to assist with class field trips. The role of the parent is to assist the teachers and help supervise a small group of students. Permission must be signed off by the parent/guardian before a student can depart on an excursion / field trip.
