Alphington Primary School

Outdoor Education

Alphington Primary School provides students from Foundation to Year 6 with the opportunity to participate in a safe, structured outdoor education program. The program encourages social interaction and interdependence, promotes independence and self-sufficiency in environments different to the regular classroom. 

At APS we have developed a program that begins in Foundation, with a two hour twilight evening at school, and culminates in a residential camp in Year 6. Each camp builds and extends upon the previous year’s program. By ensuring a mix of academic, cultural, team-building and leadership opportunities and providing camps at every year level we have created a camping program that allows our students to participate in a variety of activities and experiences.
