Camps and Excursions

​St Andrew's School provides learning opportunities to enhance the excellent learning and teaching occurring inside our learning spaces, through incursions, excursions and school camps. 


​Students participate in incursions within the school day to enhance the learning experience.  Such incursions may include guest speakers, dance lessons, science workshops, museum displays and performances​.



​Teachers work collaboratively with community organisations to provide rich learning experiences outside the school grounds.  Such excursions may include the Gold Rush excursion, Samford Historical Museum, Ngutana-Lui Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Centre, To​ohey Forest, Twelfth Night Theatre and Walkabout Creek Discovery Centre.

Our Year 5 and 6 students participate in a two night outdoor education camp.  These camps provide students with opportunities to develop independence, team work skills, set personal goals, overcome fears and challenge themselves through the activities provided.   All camps support the Health and Education Curriculum.
