Astudents in Year 9 are expected to attend the Camp information evening on Thursday 17 May in the College Gymnasium. The evening will start at 6:30pm with a representative from Somerset providing important information about the camping experiences planned for the next two years.

The 2018 Year 9 Outdoor Learning Program will take place at the Somerset Camping Grounds from Tuesday 4 September (arrival at school by 7:30am) to Friday 7 September (returning to school at 3:00pm). This experience offers a great opportunity for the young men of Waverley to learn outside the classroom, develop strong relationships with peers and take part in adventurous activities.
