The camp at Fitzroy Falls was an amazing experience for not only the new Year 7 students but also for the staff. This was the first time the school camped at this site and the students were fortunate to have new tents when camping out at night. They enjoyed the wonderful activities that were on offer including abseiling, archery, camping out and damper making, mountain bike riding, archery, the giant swing, the Koori experience just to name a few.
The Year 12 leaders were very mature and outstanding in their efforts to support students and staff throughout the camp experience. A big thank you to all the students.
I would like to thank the fantastic staff who attended and completed most, if not all, the activities with the students. Firstly thanks to Sharon Cuneen for organising the camp, John Kennedy, Jon Sculthorpe, Lara Hasham, Thomas Lee, Emily Yong, Kate Crosby, Nina Sing, Tham Sivasothy, Yasmine Manzalji, Michelle Countinho, Michael O’Connell and Michael Talarico. We all had a tiring but fulfilling camp experience.
