School Camps

School Camps

The Year 3 and 4 students had a brilliant camp at Teapot Valley this week. The weather was fantastic and the programme offered a great mix of physical and mental challenges.

Camps only happen after a whole lot of planning and organisation has gone on. A massive thank you to Gemma, Greta, Alison, Mike, Nic, all of the supporting parents, and the students for making the camps to Teapot Valley and Bridge Valley such positive and rich experiences.

The junior students had a bit of a day out themselves  at McKee Domain yesterday. They had great fun combing the beach, walking through the bush and exploring the camp playground. Once again thanks to Raewyn, Jenny, Debbie and the parents who supported the trip.
