Term 3 is Primary Camp Season!
Each year in Term 3, our Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 students embark on their annual school camp! Already this term, our Year 6 students. under the leadership of Mr Johnson, visited Longreach and other Western Queensland towns, learning about our Australian history in a week-long camp. Again, by all reports this camp was an incredible time away for students, staff and the parent helpers who always attend our trips. Our Genesis students are shining role models; children of high character and calibre, with staff at venues visited often contacting the school to let us know just how amazing our Genesis students are.
The culminating Year 6 trip is a capstone event for Primary students, but the success of this trip can be attributed to the camping program of Years 3, 4 and 5, and the development of life skills which students learn through these experiences. Later this week, our Year 3 students will go on their first school camp for one night, then Year 4 will go next week for two nights, and Year 5 in the last week of term for 3 nights. At each camp students enjoy a range of challenge activities which test their teamwork, resilience, critical thinking, and a whole range of other life skills like making your bed, going to sleep on time, and learning how to serve others at mealtimes.
Students always have the best of fun, away camping with their friends, and at Genesis we always embed our Christian values into activities and share a devotions and prayer time at night together. Thankyou to all our parents for supporting our camping program, and thankyou to our wonderful teachers who work hard to make these the best experiences possible for our children.
