School Camps

School camps and excursions are a very important part of our whole school program at Paynesville Primary School. Below is just a taste of what we offer our students:

Grade 6:
DOXA Melbourne Urban Camp

Grades 5 & 6:
Trips to New Zealand or China (alternating years)

Grade 5:
Bicycle Camp to Nowa Nowa

Grades 3 & 4:
Camping at Coonawarra or Camp Coolamatong (alternating years)

Grades 1 & 2:
Sleepover in the School Library

Good times at DOXA Camp in 2018:

Assistance for the cost of school camps is available through the government subsidised CSEF (Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund). Please see Jenny or Lauren in the office for further details.

School camps and excursions form a very important part of our school program. It is important that all students participate, as these activities are usually organised to supplement or enhance class programs with class work being done before and after each event.

All excursions and camps are pre-approved by School Council. Families are notified of planned excursions via the newsletter and special permission is required for excursions further afield.

Bicycle camp to Nowa Nowa in 2017:

Normally students will be transported by bus, but should the need arise to use cars, families will be notified of the driver and asked to sign a separate permission form. In some cases, where only a small number of students are involved, we may seek family help in finding transport for students.

Paynesville Primary School aims to provide as much up front information about proposed camps and excursions, and families will be provided with a full list of camps on each child’s booklist at the beginning of each school year.

Families have the option of paying for camps at the beginning of the year, or on a pay as you go plan.

Please do not hesitate to come and have a chat if you need any assistance.

Big fun at Camp Coolamatong in 2018:
