A big thank you to Year 7 Coordinator Mr Krol and to all other staff who attended last week’s Year 7 camp at Dunkeld. Our Year 7 students had a fabulous time making new friends and getting to know each other better. They also had the opportunity to get to know many of their new teachers outside of the classroom. The students participated in a wide range of fun and challenging activities and returned home Friday afternoon tired but happy.
On Wednesday 13th of February, 9:30am, the bus heading to Dunkeld departed with an excited crowd of year 7s. The bus ride was one hour long, and quite noisy. As we arrived, we were greeted by the park owners, Dennis and Maree. They told us the basic rules and boundaries before we were informed who was in the cabins. There was one cabin of twelve, and the other cabins ranged from 4-10. After setting up our beds, we all met up near the dining hall, and were told our activity groups. They were called the Rosellas, Currawongs, Kangaroos and Wallabies. We then got with our teachers and headed off to the first activity. Depending on which group you were in the activities you did varied. The activities were Group Initiatives, Low Ropes, Flying Fox, Giant Swing, Hiking up Piccanniny or free time, Canoeing, Rock Climbing and Abseiling and a night walk.

After a heap of fun activities it was lunch time. For lunch we had wraps. Three more hours of fun activities lead everyone back into the dining room for dinner. For dinner there was a roast lamb with veggies and ice-cream.
