Googa Student Aims

The main goals of the outdoor education programme are:

  • To develop in participants an understanding of human's relationship with the physical and biological aspects of God’s creation as expressed in the Australian countryside.
  • To promote initiative and self-reliance in students by presenting a challenge beyond that presented in the usual academic and sporting areas of the school.
  • To increase the opportunity for participants to develop a sense of co-operation, interdependence and community spirit and to encourage self-expression.
  • To deepen the participants’ spiritual life and to encourage interest in the work of the schools and the church.
  • To recognize personal and group boundaries.
