Camps and excursions

Year 6 Camp

Each year the year 6 students have the opportunity to attend a 3-day camp at Maranatha in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. It is a great opportunity to develop skills, resilience and social networks.

During the camp the students participate in various activities such as raft building, abseiling, climbing, ropes courses and many others under the care of the expertly trained staff at Maranatha.
It is a valuable experience and recommended for all students in year 6. Rumour has it that the food is amazing.  If you require any further information contact Mr Owen.

 

Year 5 Leadership Day

2018 saw the introduction of a year 5 Leadership Camp Day.  Hosted by the YMCA at Petrie students engage in a full day of fun and challenges designed to encourage team work, positive attitude, resiliance and patience.  This camp allows students and staff to come together as a team to overcome a number of physical challenges including obstacle courses, nuclear meltdown, canoeing and much much more.  At Strathpine State School we emphasise that Year 6 is a year of leadership from all students and not just those wearing a badge.  We look to our Year 6 students to set the example for the rest of the school.

 

Incursions

Strathpine State School has a number of incursions throughout the year that enable students to participate in a wide variety of learning experiences without causing financial distress to parents that excursions can sometimes bring.  These include Rocket Science, Science Days, Market Days, Star Labs, QLD Rail, QLD Police, and much more.

 

Design & Technology Excursion

Year 6 students are invited on a Design and Technology Excursion through Brisbane City where they explore and analyse Bridges and Bridge Design throughout the city.  Through taking notes and indepth peer discussions, students come back ready to tackle the Annual Bridge Building Challenge. This is a challenge for Year 6 students to work in pairs to design and construct a bridge out of allotted materials that can sustain a weight of 20kg, is wide enough to travel a match box car across and float our school mascot boat underneath.   This is a hugely popular challenge and testing day is always great fun.
