YEAR 6 CAMP
On Monday 13 September to Wednesday 15 September, the Year 6 cohort participated in a camp facilitated by Active Education at She-Oak Run at Finniss. The camp had a combined focus on personal development, resilience, team work and most of all, enjoyment.
Whilst preparing for cold and wet weather, we were greeted by mostly sunshine and beautiful conditions (minus the mosquitos!) The students participated in a range of activities from problem solving challenges, raft building, water testing, kayaking and an initiative obstacle course just to name a few. Students engaged in a t-shirt design night identifying their own mantra whilst reflecting on gratitude and ‘The Resilience Project’. Student vs Teacher basketball was a hit in the free time as well as various card games such as Uno and a movie night.
The students behaviour and the way they represented the College during this camp was exemplary as was noted and recognised by the attending College staff and Active Ed instructors. The boys should be proud of what they achieved on the camp and look back on this with fond memories. It was a learning experience that will help prepare them for their transition to secondary schooling.

WINTER SPORT WRAP UP
It has been a busy, exciting and successful sporting season for all students involved at the Primary Campus. The Primary students have proudly represented our College in a number of Saturday morning and weekly competitions throughout the winter sporting season. In total, the Primary Campus fielded an incredible 26 sporting teams in addition to participating at various sporting carnivals throughout the semester including SAPSASA and Catholic Schools Athletics, Cross Country and Touch Football.
The Reception and Year 1 cohorts were also provided with opportunities to get active and involved in afterschool sporting clinics including soccer, Auskick and netball. These students showed tremendous growth and development during these clinics with participation numbers growing on a weekly basis. Soccer numbers reached as high as 65 students with the addition of our Lasallian Stars, Auskick had 42 keen footballers and we saw 15 students come together for an inaugural netball clinic. Congratulations to all the students involved, we look forward to the summer sports season.
