There is an annual camp for each cohort from yr. 7-11. These camps enrich the curriculum offered at SGHS and provide opportunities for the development of leadership skills and strengthen the unity of each year group.
Students begin Year 7 with an orientation camp at the TOPS Conference Centre at Stanwell Tops, where the strong bonding as a year group begins. In Year 8 students venture to Australia’s capital in Canberra with a Science based experience linked with the political history and culture the capital offers. Year 9 travel over the Blue Mountains to a camp which supports the HSIE curriculum experiencing the history and geography of our rural context. At Narrabeen again in Year 10 students are challenged with a variety of physical and sporting experiences to support their personal development offered by the PD/H/PE curriculum.
In Year 11 students have their final camp at the Collaroy Centre where preparation and commitment for the demanding HSC curriculum are enhanced through a study skills program and discussion on subject choices for Year 12. This camp provides a unique opportunity for the development of leadership skills, to enhance effective team skills and to consolidate the unity of the year group.
