At Sacré Cœur our students are involved in a variety of outdoor experiences during the compulsory years.
These outdoor experiences aim to assist the students in developing strategies to prepare for "success in education, work and life" the key purpose of the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS).
In addition, at Year 8, the students are provided with a city experience at City Cite.
At each year level, the focus of the camp relates to the pastoral theme for that particular year level, and there are pre and post camp curriculum links through the online "Learning Journey"
