Please note that due to the current state border travel restrictions, the Telemark cross-country ski trip near Falls Creek planned for July is unlikely to go ahead.

Years 8/9 Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award

If students wish to join the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award and participate in expeditions, they need to register and set up an ORB (Online Record Book).

Information and Links follow. Normally we would have over 60% of the year cohort involved in this exciting and rewarding program.

Some students are completing the Mt Remarkable Bushwalk this long weekend. Other opportunities are available in Term 3 from the list above.
