Outdoor Education (3-6)

Outdoor Education is an integral part of Redeemer’s commitment to the personal growth and development of students.  It provides unique, and in some cases, life-changing opportunities for students.  The sequenced program aims to develop the following skills in our students from Years 3 to 11. 

  • Self-confidence and self-respect and an appreciation of students worth as individuals.
  • A faith for daily living that may thereby be helped in achieving their highest potential as children of God.
  • Responsibility as members of their families and citizens of their communities; recognition of the worth of all people by being sensitive to and respectful of their individual beliefs.
  • A belief that health of mind and body, physical fitness and mental well-being are conditions to be achieved and maintained.
  • Their capacities for leadership within their own groups and in community life.
  • An appreciation of the beauty, diversity and interdependence of all forms of life and all resources which God has provided in their world.

Our Outdoor Education Program links the classroom curriculum to the outdoors, and allows students to learn through practical experience, reflection, and discussion.  Students are challenged to engage in environmentally sustainable living practices and to develop key personal and social competencies. 

Students engage in challenges and activities of varying complexity that require them to be creative, organized, and resourceful; whilst developing resilience and additional skills required to live harmoniously and sustainably in an ever changing world.
