Camps and Retreats

Students will have the opportunity to participate in excursions, camps and retreats during their time at St John’s Catholic College.

  • Excursions: Students participate in a range of local excursions to enhance their learning experience. Excursions are planned by the subject teacher at the beginning of each semester.
  • Camps: Camps form part of the assessment for some elective subjects and therefore student participation is expected.
  • Retreats: As a Catholic school, our retreats program is a compulsory part of the student experience. Retreats usually take place off-campus and often overnight. Attendance and participation is expected.
  • International Tours: International tours to Japan and Indonesia (Kupang) are optional opportunities for students as part of the LOTE program. Students must undertake Bahasa Indonesian or Japanese to be eligible for these tour programs.
