Other Learning Experiences

OLE! Week is a unique multi-day Kindergarten to Year 11 College event held at the beginning of Term 4. This is a wonderful opportunity for Oxley students to explore new experiences with their peers in a supervised and supportive environment. Oxley utilises the services of Lands Edge Foundation and our own Staff expertise to create experiences ranging from the South Coast of NSW to an Urban Exploration programme in Year 6. Each programme is integrated with Oxley’s Values and Mission. The learning outcomes of OLE! are also closely aligned with the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Programme.

Students will acquire new skills as they begin their journey towards independence. Specifically, they will learn to prepare for the elements, camp in tents, navigate, canoe, cook and clean for themselves. They will also be involved in hiking, mountain biking and climbing. OLE! Week has close links to the Rites of Passage programme in Year 9 and Service Learning in Year 10 which include overseas and regional trips. The programme culminates in the ultimate Oxley experience of Outback in Year 11.
