VCAL Amazing Race



On the 17th of October, the Year 11 and 12 VCAL students all gathered at Springvale station early at 8.30 and made way to the city to start the ‘amazing race’, organized by a group of Intermediate VCAL students. Once we arrived in the city, we got straight into our groups and went ahead with the race.   Each group were allocated with different locations which were categorized into different themes. The themes were lane ways, music, street art, parks, and gardens. The groups had certain pit stops along the way and were expected to take photos to share with the groups at the end of the race.  The groups all had a time frame to complete the race in which was around 3 hours. Once we were all finished we all gathered back at Flinders Street station ready to attend our farewell lunch for the Year 12s. We booked a place called Sempre Pizza and Calzone, located at the Parliament End of Bourke Street. We ordered a total of 14 pizzas, as we were all hungry after the lovely walk in the city.
