Trinity Anglican School is an independent school in Tropical Australia that has a unique Outdoor Ed program due to its comprehensive scope and sequence.
All students in Years 1-12 at Trinity Anglican engage in the Outdoor Education Program every single year with a view to furthering their relationships with self, others, and the natural environment.
The programs are relentless in their pursuit of many and varied learning outcomes, all linked to the Australian Curriculum. They aim to reveal to students their potential, and to support students in becoming the best version of themselves.
Primary school programs are centre based, sequentially building on a range of personal and outdoor education skills. During Primary, 16 days are spent on Outdoor Ed.
Secondary school programs are predominantly journey-based, with Year 11 and 12 programs being focused on leadership, teamwork and communication, along with other personal development aims. All up there are 38 days on secondary school programs.
Participation rates average 97% for the entire year, with many programs attracting 100% of students.
Additional and extension opportunities are also available through the bespoke Year 10 Outdoor Recreation Program (21 activity days), 28-day World Challenge Expedition to developing countries, and the Duke of Edinburgh (International) Award.
