Observation checklistsObservation checklists

Recreation camps provide students with an opportunity to practise develop and demonstrate various skills and outcomes related to the Western Australian Curriculum Framework.

Observation checklists have been developed to assist teachers with the assessment of outcomes and to identify observable behaviours throughout the course of the camp. These checklists align to descriptions of expected standards developed by the Department of Education within interpersonal skills and self-management skills outcomes.
