YEAR 6 CAMP
On 12 – 14 October, the Year 6 cohort ventured to Aldinga Beach Holiday Park to take part in a camp facilitated by Active Ed. This camp had a strong focus on personal growth, leadership, resilience building, problem solving, and group dynamics. The weather was perfect and the students were excited for a fun start to their final term at the Primary Campus.
The students took part in several small activities and games that challenged their team work, communication and resilience and taught them skills to become more successful in group situations and as individuals. They also completed an orienteering course in the Aldinga Scrub which involved being surrounded by nature and sighting several kangaroos.
On day two, the group boarded the bus to Encounter Bay for aquatics where students completed sailing, kayaking and surf education which was a highlight of the camp.
Students enjoyed games of basketball, volleyball and soccer during their free time, as well as making use of the jumping pillow and games of Uno. Another highlight was the students vs teachers basketball game with Mr Rose, Mr Basso and Mr Gazettas which were played competitively until dark.
The students represented the College in a fantastic light and displayed their growth and maturity that has developed throughout their experiences at the Primary Campus, particularly this year in preparation for their journey to the Secondary Campus.
