Trinity Grade 6 Camp 2014


Sunday 16th March – Thursday 20th March


You bring your child to us

A step toward letting go

And trusting in our special plan

To help your child grow



  • To provide an experience where students come away with a greater personal awareness of themselves and others.  Through participation in group and individual activities, it is expected that students will further develop the skills of:
  • Independence
  • Personal responsibility
  • Cooperation
  • Persistence
  • Resilience
  • Flexibility in thinking
  • Initiative
  • Time management
  • Roles and responsibilities of a leader


Civic knowledge and understanding

At Level 6, students describe the nature of Australia’s democracy that developed as a result of Federation. They describe the three levels of government and some of the key functions of each level. They explain the basic elements of Australia’s federal parliamentary system and key democratic principles and values such as freedom of speech and equality before the law. They explain the concept of multiculturalism and describe the contribution of various cultural groups, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, to Australian identity. They demonstrate understanding of the process of making and changing laws.



Community Engagement

At Level 6, students demonstrate understanding of the roles and responsibilities of leaders, and of democratic processes, when engaging in school and community activities. They present a point of view on a significant current issue or issues and include recommendations about the actions that individuals and governments can take to resolve issues. They demonstrate understanding that there are different viewpoints on an issue, and contribute to group and class decision making.


AusVELS Standards


Australia as a nation

The Level 6 curriculum moves from colonial Australia to the development of Australia as a nation, particularly after 1900. Students explore the factors that led to Federation and experiences of democracy and citizenship over time. Students understand the significance of Australia’s British heritage, the Westminster system, and other models that influenced the development of Australia’s system of government.


Interpersonal Development

Building social relationships

At Level 6, students demonstrate, through their interactions in social situations, respect for a diverse range of people and groups. They accept and display empathy for the points of view and feelings of their peers and others. They identify and use a variety of strategies to manage and resolve conflict.

Working in teams

At Level 6, students work effectively in different teams and take on a variety of roles to complete tasks of varying length and complexity. They work cooperatively to allocate tasks and develop timelines. Students accept responsibility for their role and tasks. They explain the benefits of working in a team. They provide feedback to others and evaluate their own and the team’s performance.

AusVELS Standards


Personal Learning

Managing personal learning

At Level 6, students develop and implement plans to complete short-term and long-term tasks within timeframes set by the teacher, utilizing appropriate resources. They undertake some set tasks independently, identifying stages for completion. They describe task progress and achievements, suggesting how outcomes may have been improved. They persist when experiencing difficulty with learning tasks. They seek and use learning support when needed from peers, teachers and other adults. They practice positive self talk. They demonstrate a positive attitude to learning within and outside the classroom.

TERM 2ISTAR UNITWhat Makes an Effective Leader?

This is the focus research question for our iSTAR Unit in Term 2. In addition to the Personal and Interpersonal Learning associated with the camp experience, this camp will also be used as an immersion into our iSTAR unit on leadership. We will be looking at the qualities of those who have assumed leadership roles in Parliament and how and why they are effective leaders.

Students develop an understanding of how they can be effective leaders in the school community, identifying their leadership strengths through their understanding of what makes a good leader and contribute to their chosen leadership team.

We visit a working Parliament building - hear what the Government is doing, see new laws being made, listen to debate about issues of the day - and be a part of democracy in action.

The Memorial commemorates the service and sacrifice of all Australian men and women in wartime.

Here we can also pay your respects and discover what it means to be Australian.
