Discover your potential & explore the adventure opportunities through a curriculum designed specifically to extend your comfort zones.

Through open consultation with Blackwood Staff, each program is tailored to the specific requests, needs and choices from each individual school while focusing on one of our 2 Key Learning Areas:  Resilience or Teamwork.

Schools select one Key Learning Area as their primary program focus.  This choice will aid the design and delivery of lessons throughout their stay while also creating assessment opportunities.

With this chosen Key Learning Area in mind, programs are then tailored specifically to the groups' curriculum levels and educational needs.

The Blackwood Special Schools Outdoor Education Centre learning programs have links across all Victorian Curriculum areas. However, our primary emphasis is on the following Victorian Curriculum areas and capabilties, as these target Blackwood Special Schools Outdoor Education Centre’s:

  • Health and PE
  • Personal and Social Capabilities
  • English; Speaking and Listening

Our Key Learning Areas

Team Work

Note: With consultation, Blackwood staff can create programs focusing learning on other subjects such as:-

  • Environmental Studies
  • Aboriginal Culture
  • History and European Settlement
