PublishingPageContent

Excursions and camps are designed to support the emotional, social and academic learning for students. Every effort is made to minimise the financial burden on families with payment plans available. Students are expected to attend all excursions/camps.

Birkdale South is committed to providing safe and supportive learning environments for its student, staff and volunteers. This commitment includes the health and safety of staff and students when conducting curriculum activities at school or other locations.
School excursions enhance students’ learning by providing the opportunities for students to participate in curriculum-related activities outside the normal school routine. School excursions are well-planned curriculum-related activities that aim to maximise students' learning experiences.

Exclusion

At times, a student may be ineligible to attend an excursion or camp due to a history of inappropriate behaviour and his/her behaviour is seen as a risk to his/her and others safety. The classroom teacher camp coordinator and Principal will make this decision and communicate this to the parents.

Reasons for exclusions may include:
  • Risk to the safety of other children and staff
  • Health issues
  • Unacceptable behaviour 
  • Behaviour management 
Non-attendance - An appropriate school program will be provided for those students not attending the camp for whatever reason.
