The Middle and Senior School Class Excursion Program

Carinya has pursued the development of an excursion and outdoor education program because it offers so much to our students that extends and complements the curriculum of the classroom. The commitment of the school to the development of the whole person makes the excursion program an invaluable part of the total school curriculum and not just “icing on the cake”.

The excursion program has 3 main benefits:

1. Educational Opportunities

Excursion experiences are usually enriching in themselves, but they can also engender subsequent, follow-up activities in the classroom and even help students reflect on their classroom experience in new and refreshing ways.

A new learning environment always stimulates children to think more broadly and the expertise of other teachers or specialist guides can impact powerfully on students, sometimes in a remarkable way.

2. Social Interaction

It is obvious to those who staff the excursion program that the intense nature of the experiences significantly enhances the development of self-confidence, initiative, co-operation, determination and organisational skills of most of the students.

Students experience:

  • personal and social growth
  • new challenges and learn to cope with change
  • the development of decision making and communication skills
  • responsibility for the welfare of others
  • the demands of service developing
  • new relationships with peers and teachers in a different environment
3. Gospel Challenges

During every excursion Bible studies are presented on a daily basis, focussing on the “good news” about Jesus and challenging students with the truth of God's Word.
