Initially conceived as a voluntary bush walking club, the School’s Leslie Gladstone Robertson (LGR) Society, was established in 1959. While hiking and camping remains the primary focus, today, other activities include skiing, mountain biking, scuba diving and rogaining.
Boys in Years 9 – 12 may choose to participate in LGR activities, which operate during most holiday breaks and on some weekends throughout term.
In addition to developing the skills of navigation and bushcraft, LGR promotes the development of constructive group dynamics. Participants are also asked to recognise and actively promote the respect, care, and maintenance of the natural and built environment.
Leadership of hike groups on LGR camps is often undertaken by Year 11 and 12 students. They take direct responsibility for the health and safety of not only themselves, but also that of others in their hike group.
