Year 8 Camp & Outdoor Education Camp

Year 9 Outdoor Education Camp

The Year 9 Outdoor Education class recently went on their 3-day Hiking Camp to the Cathedral Range State Park in Taggerty.

This camp provided students with an opportunity to experience an overnight camping and hiking experience presenting students with the chance to link and apply practical experiences to the theoretical investigations explored in class. The students had been preparing hard all semester and I would like to congratulate all students on their efforts and willingness to be pushed outside their comfort zones, try new activities and for their teamwork and enthusiasm displayed throughout the camp.

On the 5th of May, Year 9 OED went on a three day camp to the Cathedral Ranges. The weather treated us really well and the views from the top of the mountains were astonishing. On the first day, we arrived at the campsite and set up the tents like we had practiced at school before. After setting up the tents Miss Wallace and Mr Craig drove us 14 students to our first hike at Sugarloaf Saddle. The 30 minute hike had some steep sections and rock climbing elements near the top. In the end, the view was worth all the hard work and resilience. However, after many photos we started to head back from the arduous hike, we settled down to cook our dinner we had prepared. Our Trangias were lit and ready to go. Some of us cooked pasta, tacos and even dumplings. They were fortunately really good to eat. The second day was the day of the main hike, up Neds Gully to Cathedral Peak. From the bottom of the mountain, we hiked 2 and a half hours up to the peak and ate our well-deserved lunch. The view was incredible, totally opposite to the one on the first day. After the long and exhausting hike, we went back down to the base camp and cooked our final dinner. It was once again, really good. After a chilly dip in the river and a night walk, we could barely move any of our muscles. Then we all sat in front of the campfire roasting marshmallows and reflecting on our time away from urbanisation. Overall, the camp was absolutely fantastic, with the highlights outweighing the lows by a margin and a half. Us students enjoyed the camp so much and it was a good mental break from technology and the daily routines of school. Thank you Miss Wallace and Mr Craig for taking us to this incredible camp.

Year 8 Camp Rumbug

The year 8 students attended camp Rumbug in Foster from the 3rd to the 5th of May. The three day camp was extremely successful where the students participated in a number of fun activities where they were able to build positive relationships with both their peers and staff. Highlights of the camp included the  flying fox, canoeing, raft building, tree climbing and the plank challenge that both staff and students participated in.


Some of our year 8 students were asked about their camp experience -
