School camps are considered an essential element of the St Therese’s Catholic School curriculum. Camps are held annually for our Grades 3 – 6 students as part of our Outdoor Education Programme. Through careful and detailed planning by staff, students are given opportunities to experience living away from the school and home environment in a way that teaches them the value of co-operative group work, the need to develop an awareness of God in their lives and the skills necessary to live in different environments.
Some of our major aims and goals for students participating in our Outdoor Education Programme include:
The learning programme for all classes at St Therese’s is also complemented by a range of diverse excursions throughout the year.
Apart from Physical Education classes throughout the year, there is the opportunity to be involved in a number of extra-curricular sporting activities. These include soccer (from Prep), Netball and Football (Grade 5/6).
Music education is an integral part of the Australian National Curriculum. In addition to the Music programme, students have the opportunity to be a part of our junior or senior choirs along with percussion groups. Our students are given the opportunity to participate in school eisteddfods during the school year.
