Camps & Tours

St James’ Anglican School believes that camps and tours form an integral part of our curriculum and provide experiences and activities central to students’ academic and personal development.

Experiential learning is well founded in education, and provides unique opportunities, which will endeavour to enhance learning outcomes across all subject areas for our students.  Through camps and tours, students are given the opportunity to experience a wide range of activities beyond the usual school settings.

Students are able to interact with their teachers and peers in a setting vastly different from the classroom. With these day-to-day barriers broken, there is great potential for positive interaction at a much higher level.

A school priority is establishing harmonious school relationships for the achievement of common goals and camps are a natural extension of this philosophy.

The types of platform your child may use include;

  • Social media networks; Facebook (where people interact with others)
  • Microblogging; Twitter, Tumblr (where users broadcast short messages)
  • Messaging apps; Kik Messenger, Snapchat (where texts and short videos can be sent)

St James’ Anglican School would like to provide the School Community with information to guide parents to keeping their children safe on social media.
