Alpine Lessons
Alpine Lessons - An Overview

This section highlights a number of the unique lessons students get to experience at the Alpine School Campus. In designing the local curriculum we have aimed to select classes which are relevant, enjoyable, engaging and integrated with learning from the core School for Student Leadership educational program.

Our unique program at the Alpine School focuses on engaging the students in activities which allow them to explore and learn about the local environment and cultures; both indigenous and non-indigenous. Gaining a sense of belonging in local places through knowledge and experience is a key learning outcome.

Providing safe and enjoyable outdoor experiences which facilitate the practical application of knowledge gained from Thinking and Learning, Peer Skills, Leadership and Teamwork classes is another primary objective of the localised program.

Alpine Lessons - Bike Riding

Introduction to mountain bikes and off road riding.

Bike Riding

The desired outcomes of this unit are to install the students with confidence in all aspects of biking.

We introduce the students to riding in the Alpine environment (both on and off road) and hope to build their confidence so they can utilise their time on bikes whilst at the Alpine School Campus. The lessons also help students to develop a thorough understanding on bike repair and bike maintenance.
