Adventure Weekends

An integral part of the Secondary Section programme is Adventure Weekends. All Secondary students spend five days away per year, engaged in adventurous activities in nature.

Autumn activities typically include mountain biking, caving, rock climbing, camping, orienteering and trekking. This excursion lasts a weekend (Saturday morning to Sunday afternoon). Years 7 to 10 go one weekend and Years 11 to 13 the following weekend.

In the winter, students spend a full Saturday away in the mountains. They have a choice of snowboarding, downhill skiing and cross-country skiing at beginner or advanced level.

The Summer weekend is based on the lake at Velenje. Students build skills in kayaking, dinghy sailing and windsurfing, with three sessions of three-hours each. There are fun activities laid on in the evening before the night in the youth hostel.

All equipment (except ski equipment for the winter excursion) is provided and the cost is included in the fees, including meals and water, but excluding other soft drinks and snacks. The programme is overseen by the Deputy Head, who is a qualified and experienced outdoor education specialist. Adventure Weekends are accompanied by at least two members of staff from the school.
