Our goal is to create a genuine, sequential and outcomes-based outdoor learning continuum across our Kindergarten to Year 12 school. Therefore, Outdoor Education is embedded in each year of our students’ schooling, with a progressive program designed to develop their physical, emotional and social resilience, whilst strengthening their connection to the natural environment.

In addition to the Outdoor Education opportunities provided to all students in the curriculum, Pymble students can also elect to extend their learning by participating in Co-curricular Outdoor Education programs including The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and the Australian Army Cadets.

    Army Cadets encourages service, leadership, teamwork and outdoor skills. Students learn to be confident, self-sufficient, disciplined and to commit mentally and physically to challenging activities.

    The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a youth development program for 14 to 25 year olds in more than 125 countries around the world. The award offers a framework for all young people in Australia to develop valuable life skills and to make a real contribution to their personal development and their community. The opportunity for young people to try new things or to get recognition for what they are already doing through the program is tremendous.
