Our Outdoor Education Program encourages students to challenge themselves in a range of outdoor activities and adventures. Students explore our natural environment, learn to work cooperatively and gain confidence in their own abilities.
Whether paddling a canoe through Nootka Sound, cooking meals together or cooperating to set up a group shelter, students gain an appreciation for their peers and build upon what they thought to be their own personal limits.
The Outdoor Education Program includes:
- ECE to Grade 2 students explore and develop an appreciation for our natural surroundings through the Outside While Learning (OWL) Program.
- Grade 3 students spend a day at a nearby outdoor camp and are introduced to activities like canoeing, kayaking, archery, swimming, and climbing.
- Grade 4 and 5 students go on two outdoor trips each year, including their first overnight trip.
- Grade 6 to Grade 12 students participate in Outweek featuring opportunities to camp, canoe, kayak, cave and climb at Strathcona Park, sail a tall ship with SALTS, or explore our underwater environment in a scuba diving program.
