During the last week of Term Three, the adventurous Year 4 students headed out for camp to the picturesque Uki in northern NSW, to attend Midginbil Hill Outdoor Education Centre. The purpose of the camp was to experience team work challenges, build resilience, collaborate, communicate and learn about the history and ecosystem of the local volcanic environment.

Over the course of the three days the students rotated through the six sessions and were led by instructors and teachers through an Eco –walk, archery, rock climbing, orienteering, and canoeing on the beautiful Clarrie Hall dam, Team challenge and Problem solving. The students were great ambassadors for the College during these sessions and they all offered their assistance to each other as they creatively attempted to solve scenarios presented to them.

We also saw the creative sides of the students during the performance evening on the last night, when the Barn turned into a Year 4 talent show during a very heavy passing shower of rain.

It was a wonderful camp with many happy, but tired campers, returning to the College on the Friday afternoon to their families.
