At Kosciuszko Street Primary School, we believe that learning extends beyond the walls of the classroom. That's why we offer a range of engaging and educational experiences through camps, excursions, and visiting performances. These experiences provide our students with direct and real-life learning opportunities that enrich their education and foster personal growth.
Camps, excursions, and visiting performances are carefully planned in advance, aligning with our curriculum and classroom programs. These experiences serve as extensions of the learning that takes place in the classroom, allowing students to apply their knowledge in practical settings and develop valuable life skills.
Each year, our Grade 3-4 students embark on a memorable camp experience, while our Grade 5-6 students have the opportunity to participate in a separate camp. The locations for these camps are determined at the beginning of the year and communicated to families well in advance. These immersive experiences encourage teamwork, resilience, and personal development, fostering independence and building lasting memories.
In addition to our annual camps, we offer a special sleepover experience for our Grade 2 students. This unique opportunity provides them with a camp-like experience right at our school premises. The Grade 2 sleepover aims to prepare students for their upcoming Grade 3 camp, familiarizing them with the routines, challenges, and excitement associated with overnight stays. It's an opportunity for our young learners to build confidence, develop social skills, and create lasting connections with their peers.
We understand the importance of keeping parents informed about upcoming camps, excursions, and visiting performances. We utilize our school newsletter and Compass, our online communication platform, to notify families well in advance about these experiences. Detailed information, including dates, locations, itinerary, and any specific requirements, will be provided, ensuring parents are kept well-informed and can support their child's participation.
At Kosciuszko Street Primary School, we are committed to providing holistic education that goes beyond traditional classroom learning. Our camps, excursions, and visiting performances offer students invaluable opportunities to explore, discover, and grow. These experiences not only enhance their academic knowledge but also foster personal and social development, instilling a sense of adventure, curiosity, and resilience. We believe that by immersing our students in these real-world learning experiences, we empower them to become well-rounded individuals ready to embrace the challenges and opportunities of the world around them.
