A Week of Action and Adventure

Week 3 saw the Year 11 cohort venture to Alexandra Headlands for their annual Leadership Camp. Embarking upon a program specifically designed to take them out of their comfort zones physically, socially, and emotionally, they embraced the activities including high ropes, stand-up paddle boarding, fishing, and surfing. Our Principal, Mr Thompson also met with each of the three tutor groups to discuss leadership and encouraged them to begin thinking about their theme for 2023.

Our Years 9 and 10 cohorts took part in separate two-day incursions run by outside providers Tribes Adventure. In a round-robin of activities designed to challenge their physical and mental abilities, teams were scored for their ability to complete the set tasks, as well as their teamwork and spirit. The weather held off just long enough for the four-day adventure and everyone enjoyed testing their skills.  With the progression to new work beginning in Week 4, the two incursions were the perfect way to celebrate together.
