Outdoor Education

“At Porties, we don’t camp — we Outdoor Ed!”

Introduced for the first time in 2023 and continuing in 2024, Outdoor Ed is an exciting programme for Porties students to:

  • Connect with our local environment
  • Be introduced to camping skills
  • Spend time bonding as a class
  • Experience an adventure type activity

It is a programme designed to occur instead of camps.

Outdoor Ed will consist of 3 days during the year, and be based on these headings:

  • Team Building
  • Bush Walking
  • Adventure Day

Cost & Payment

Payment will be required at the time of each Outdoor Ed event per class, and will vary depending on the activities and any travel requirements. Pricing will be included in each permission slip sent home (digitally via eamail) and payments can be made using the QKR! app under the opporopriate section.

Payment plans are available if required.
