Challenge Programs

Outdoor education, adventure and engagement with the natural world is an important part of school life at Toorak College.

Wardle House Outdoor Education Program

Each year, students from Years 2 to 6 participate in a dynamic, structured and challenging Outdoor Education program that takes students into environments different from their everyday life.

Programs are sequentially linked to the Primary Years Program of Inquiry (PYP) and tailored to develop the whole person, promoting self-esteem, resourcefulness, independence, resilience, tolerance and determination. Students have the opportunity to build on skills and understandings from previous years and increase awareness and understanding of the natural environment.

The Wardle House Outdoor Education experience begins in Year 2 with an overnight stay and by Year 6 students progress to a week-long camp. Students benefit from the socialisation, experience and fun of being ‘on camp’, which builds confidence, communication and collegiate collaboration.

Senior School Outdoor Education Program

Our Senior School camps focus on the School's guiding values of Empower, Academic Growth, Personal Growth and Thrive, to enrich and enhance each girl's learning journey at Toorak College.

Programs are delivered sequentially, reinforcing our pastoral curriculum as the girls undertake challenges to foster new friendships and strengthen connections as they proceed through Senior School together.

Students build resilience and acquire leadership skills through a range of physical, emotional and social challenges, both locally and internationally, enabling them to develop into independent, critical thinking, globally conscious and considerate young women.
