Outdoor education commences at St Paul's in Kindergarten, with students in Kindergarten to Year 2 participating in day camps where they undertake appropriately designed outdoor activities at a local campsite and return home to their families in the afternoon.
From Year 3 through to Year 11 students attend annual camps of 3 to 4 days duration that aim to develop physical skills, enhance interpersonal relationships, build resilience and examine the Christian faith.
Co-curricular activities at St Paul's allow students to discover and develop interests and abilities in a wide range of endeavours. Usually over 100 students in Years 9 to 12 participate in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme through the school. The scheme fits well with the other programs of the school as it encompasses physical recreation, skills, service and adventurous journey. Students can participate in the program at Bronze, Silver or Gold level.Our Gold level expeditions are generally in Tasmania or New Zealand.
