The Year 11 Camp is designed to not only teach and enhance students urban navigation skills, but also allow for subject specific excursions. The class heads to Melbourne each year, and we stay just south of the Yarra in the Urban Central Hostel. Students quickly orient themselves by exploring the city on foot and by tram. 

This year PDHPE students played tennis at Melbourne Park, Business Students visited Eithad Stadium, the Art visited the National Gallery, Studies of Religion were taught at the Melbourne Buddhist Centre, amongst many other excursions such as touring Melbourne University.

The Camp allows for efficient learning activities relevant to the subjects students are taking in their Preliminary courses, as well as enjoying various cultural aspects of Melbourne.  The entire class visited the Melbourne Gaol after dark, had an Italian dinner on Lygon Street as well as experiencing the Melbourne Star and the MCG.

Wherever we went comments were made about the responsible and polite manner of the Year 11 students and the camp was an enjoyable and productive experience for all.
