Camps and excursions

Exploring our local area

Given the location of the school, within walking distance of sporting facilities, museums, town centre, art gallery, sound shell, high school and child care centres, students regularly participate in excursions to enhance their hands-on learning.

The Naracoorte Caves and Bool Lagoon are only a short bus trip away. The Nature Park adjoins the school and is used regularly as a teaching resource.

An Environmental Project is currently underway to improve the use of the Nature Walk and introduce local Aboriginal heritage experiences.


Students in Years 5 and 6 participate in a School Camp Program each year.

The Year 5 students go to Ballarat, participating in a range of activities designed to give them a deeper understanding of the Gold Rush and it’s influence upon Australian Culture.

The Year 6 students attend Aquatic Camp, where they canoe, sail, surf and kayak. These camps are held in Adelaide at the West Lakes complex.


The Year 4 and 6 students have a “Big Day Out”.

The Year 4s head to a location within a four hour radius of Naracoorte (sometimes over the Victorian border) while the Year 6s travel to Monarto Zoo, where they participate in both fun and educational activities .
