The Outdoor Education Program encourages students to challenge themselves in a range of outdoor activities and adventures. Students explore our natural environment, learn to work cooperatively and gain confidence in their own abilities.

Outweek is a cornerstone of the SMS co-curriculum, and a beloved tradition that dates back over 30 years. It affords girls a variety of opportunities designed to challenge and educate them using our coastal environment and travel abroad. Integral to the success of Outweek is our 30-year relationship with Strathcona Park Lodge, Canada’s oldest outdoor education centre.

This year, a contest challenged students to make a video highlighting their Outweek experience. The result…epic and breathtaking student-made videos that show not only the stunning outdoor environment available to students on Vancouver Island, but also the relationships built over the course of the week. 

Here is a look at some of the early submissions, there are more to come so keep checking back and let us know what you think.
