Life Skills Experience

We are fortunate enough to offer a full school camp each year. This will be a major highlight for the year and provide students with rich learning outside the classroom experiences. Students will be pushed outside their comfort zones, develop confidence and resilience, and strengthen class bonds with their peers and teachers.
