Year 3/4 Camp 30th August - 1st September
The Year 3s and 4s have the opportunity to attend Camp Manyung, Mt. Eliza at the end of August this year.

School camps play a vital role in the education of your child and build upon the Health and Physical Education program in our school.

They provide an excellent opportunity for children to develop personal attributes, such as self-reliance, tolerance and co-operation. The Camp provides children with opportunities to take healthy risks in a safe and nurturing environment and offers new, varied, challenging and practical experiences.

We are excited about attending this Camp as it will provide our children with opportunities to develop their personal and interpersonal skills while experiencing a range of activities. These may include the flying fox, the giant swing, hut building and campfire cooking. Fully qualified YMCA employees manage the camp and it is safely maintained and well equipped.

Some excursion venues are required to collect contact details and are responsible for managing record keeping for contact-tracing in line with current public health directives.

Most venues are required to use electronic record keeping that connects with an Application Programming Interface (API) linked provider or a digital system provided by Services Victoria.

The Department of Health has strongly recommended that a contact number for each individual student is provided. A school phone number alone is not considered sufficient. Providing contact details for individual students will expedite contact tracing so that individuals can be contacted by the Department of Health if required.

Parents/carers/guardians are advised that, when required, the school will be providing excursion venues with contact details for students. The phone number on school file for the student will be provided as the nominated contact number.

Venues will be collecting student names and contact phone numbers for a legitimate purpose and are subject to Victorian privacy laws so will handle the information securely and only retain it for the required 28-day period.
