Year 7 Camp 2020 was a time of building resilience, motivation and taking steps towards a cohesive cohort identity. The adverse weather at Luther Heights Youth Camp did not manage to dampen the students’ spirits as they participated in a number of activities including the flying fox (by far the most popular), a scavenger hunt, beach games, boogie boarding and a combination of individual and team challenges.
Both staff and students were very well fed, courtesy of a caring and professional catering team. The facilities were amazing including the new Dining Hall as well as the “Ocean Outlook” dormitories and they certainly made camp that much more comfortable.
I would like to give a special shout out to all teaching and pastoral care staff involved in leading our groups as well as our dedicated parent volunteers who made the coordination of the camp both organised and enjoyable.
A special thank you also goes out to the instructors at Luther Heights who managed to make activities work – even in the rain!

As the final year at school can be full of stress and pressure, Year 12 Camp in early February was a chance for students to get away and relax at the beach, while also having some high quality information sessions to prepare for the year ahead. Guest speakers Graham Hyman and Peter Janetzki gave the students great advice on how to get the most out of their final year of school.
A drum session on the first night brought the cohort together and the now traditional garbage bag formal was a nice dress rehearsal for the real thing later in the year! Although the rain got in the way of quite a few beach activities, it was wonderful to see the Class of 2020 maintain a positive attitude and get the most out of this experience!
