Outdoor Education

At St Peter’s Girls, we encourage our students to challenge their thinking well beyond the classroom walls. Our Outdoor Education program develops resilience and tenacity in our girls, while also instilling the value of teamwork.

School camps and study tours often result in enduring friendships built on shared experiences and memories that last a lifetime. Whether it’s the camaraderie of a singalong around a campfire or the satisfaction of climbing a gruelling peak, our girls move out of their comfort zones and push the boundaries, enhancing their self-awareness, respect for others and appreciation of nature.

All students from Reception to Year 10 are involved in our structured program, which allows girls to explore, discover and take supervised and controlled risks in a supportive and safe environment.

Locations include Robe, Kangaroo Island, Flinders Ranges, Fleurieu Peninsula and the Coorong.

In addition, our Year 5s visit Ballarat for a gold rush tour and Year 6 students undertake a study trip to Canberra.

Two-day retreats are held in Years 11 and 12 to further develop life skills as students approach adulthood, with a focus on study habits, career goals and wellbeing.

Our Outdoor Education program is progressively challenging as our girls mature, encouraging them to connect with their peers, experience the great outdoors and, most importantly, develop their sense of identity in a rapidly changing world.
