The children in Years 5 to 6 attend camps during the year as part of the curriculum provided at Albany Creek State School.
Year 4 - Warrawee Camp
Year 5 - Tallebudgera Camp
Year 6 - Canberra/Sydney study tour
The visit by our Year 6 students to our National Capital is one of the highlights of their academic experiences at Albany Creek State School. While in Canberra the students visit many marvellous venues and attractions of national significance. They learn about the workings of the Australian democratic system of government and are provided with practical exposure to the electoral system. The students witness scientific phenomena, participate in cultural and sporting spectacles, enjoy a variety of social activities and experience the wonders of Canberra by night from the heights of Black Mountain Tower. The trip to Canberra is an exciting part of the diversity of memorable learning experiences provided by the dedicated Year 6 team.
Senior Music Camp
In addition to these general year level camps, a Senior Music Camp is also held each year. The three days of Music Camp is approximately equal to one semester of music tuition. This is a very beneficial experience for all students.
Class teachers organise appropriate excursions for their students that will further enhance a topic they are covering. Sometimes parents are invited to help out on these occasions. Parents volunteering to come and help as a group leader are asked to make necessary arrangements for their toddlers. The role of the parent on excursions is to assist the teachers supervise the students (cost of entry will be paid by the parent). Permission notes must be signed and returned to the school before a student can depart on an excursion.
