Some of these activities include: team sports, individual sporting skills development, chess club, choirs and the Duke of Edinburgh Program.
We have endorsed a sequential program specifically designed to challenge and teach about Christian living and the outdoors.
Complimenting the Outdoor Education program at Calderwood Christian School is the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.
Giving our students the opportunity to get out of their comfort zones, learn something new or further develop their passion.
Unique to Calderwood Christian School, we endeavour to use Outdoor Education to provide a deep, challenging and rewarding experience of God’s creation for our students.
Outdoor Education can be instrumental in the teaching of self-reliance, interdependence and leadership, the development of an adventurous spirit, managing personal risks, safe journeys in nature, the value of life-long outdoor recreation for enjoyment, health and well-being and for understanding nature through direct experience. Additionally, it can aid in developing deeper human-nature relationships, and a relationship with the Creator God.
Any learning experience that can be undertaken in the outdoors or in a natural setting can contribute positively to a range of learning areas. We strive to achieve these outcomes with our extensive camping program from Years 6-12.
This award successfully equips young people for life and work.
Participants design their own unique program that challenges them to set and meet goals while forging qualities of regular engagement, planning, resolve and commitment. Open to young people aged 14 to 24, the Award is run in over 130 countries and is available at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels.
Any student from Year 9 has the opportunity to be involved in this worthwhile program.
We’re a growing school for a new and growing community.
We run regular tours and open days for parents and students to have a taste of life at Calderwood. We’d love to welcome you to one of them soon!Book a Tour
