Learning Outside The Classroom
Danebank has developed extensive learning opportunities that take place outside the general classroom.
They are an integral part of planned teaching and learning programmes.
Danebank’s extensive excursion programme is integral to effective learning. Excursions in all year groups ensure that students are challenged in hands-on situations which supplement classroom learning. These include excursions to theatres, work experience, field trips, exhibitions and many more.
Visiting speakers and other presenters offer more activities that broaden students’ learning experiences and add to the breadth of learning inside the classroom.
Students have the opportunity to travel inside Australia as part of their study programmes and during holiday periods. Recent travel destinations have included Ballarat and Canberra.
Danebank’s camping programme begins in Year 3 and increases in level of difficulty as students move through to their school years. Students are challenged personally and in groups through outdoor learning situations that stretch them beyond their normal comfort zones. Camps are also great bonding opportunities for students.
