Year 7 Camp

Year 7 Camp

Noosa North Shore Retreat

Earlier this term in Week 5, the Year 7s headed off to camp! It was a fantastic opportunity for the students to make new friends and share new experiences together! On camp we spent a lot of time at the beach learning how to body board and surf! The students were also challenged in the high ropes activities and had the opportunity to try various difficulties.

The activities that the students could choose from were the flying fox, an obstacle course in their air, the giant swing and the leap of faith. We saw a lot of encouragement and team work amongst the Year 7s. This was demonstrated when so many of them wanted to help serve each other breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as how they demonstrated their gratitude to each other and the staff at Adventure Alternatives.

The students were also put to the test with the mountain biking experience and having to build a raft that could carry up to 7 students with minimal materials. The ultimate activity however, was the laser tag at night time. The Year 7s absolutely loved running through the obstacles at night and using team strategies to try and win. All of the teachers and parent helpers were so encouraged to see how well the Year 7s got a long and took the challenges in their stride.

We were so thankful for the amazing weather and that the students got to enjoy quality time together. I am also so grateful to the parent helpers that came and spent time with the staff on Year 7 Camp. A camp can never run smoothly without the tireless work of the staff that attend camp.

It was truly a camp to remember and the students are still talking about it today!

Kind regards,
