Year Seven Camp

Found in: Secondary


During Week Six, the Year Sevens embarked on a journey of personal growth and development at the Year Seven Camp. The group boarded buses and ventured south for four days at Woodman Point Recreation Camp.

Students broke up into small groups to rotate through a series of twelve activities across the duration of the event.  These covered a variety of areas, giving students to chance to learn new skills of all types, whether they be artistic, problem solving, teamwork, sporting or lateral thinking. Other activities gave students the opportunity to face and conquer fears.  Highlights included archery, flying fox, abseiling, kite making and search and rescue.

Evenings were spent as one group.  The first night was Quiz Night and the second was Mini Mercy Idol, showcasing some of the up and coming talent we can look forward to at the College over the next six years.  Special mention must go to Rohan Manoj, whose stand-up comedy routine won him first prize and brought the house down in the process.  Night three was movie night, a chance to relax a bit after three action packed days.  

We were blessed with magnificent weather and were only victim to a brief downpour as we boarded buses back to the College on the final day.  All in all the 2017 Year Seven Camp was a great success, forging new friendships and forming life long memories.  I extend a huge thank you to all staff who attended, without whom the event could not have taken place.
