About the program
Students at Larrakeyah Primary School are offered varied and rich learning experiences through the Outdoor Education program. This is a stimulating program that develops personal and social qualities including proactive engagement, resourcefulness, independence, resilience, teamwork and respect for others. Students are given the opportunity to discover hidden strengths and develop their leadership skills and capabilities to approach unfamiliar situations with confidence and knowledge. Rather than learning indirectly from books, children are put in an environment for challenging but safe risk taking. They are then able to learn through direct experience.
