The Most Fantastic, Funniest Camp Ever
By Tima Korin, Year 4 Student
I loved all the activities at the Year 4 camp but my favourites were rock climbing and canoeing. Lake Ainsworth was such a beautiful, brilliant place.
Nicole Fann, Year 4 Teacher
Year 4 students headed out on the Wednesday of the last week of Term Three to the beautiful Midginbil Hill in the Tweed Valley, NSW. The location was set for a wonderful three days and two nights as the students found out their cabin groups and their activity groups and made themselves at home.
Over the course of the camp, the students were challenged through a variety of outdoor educational experiences that ranged from canoeing on the Clarrie Dam, orienteering, Eco-Walk up the hill discovering how to identify gum trees and then the ultimate rest stop at the Big Tree with Mt Warning as the back drop. Other activities included by the creek, fossicking through the rocks and analysing the water quality, indoor rock climbing and lastly Team Challenge.
We also had an opportunity to see what great talent Year 4 has with the Year 4 Idol event on the last night. There was an amazing talent pool and with so much variety it was very hard for the panel to determine some winners in the different categories. Overall, the experience for all involved was very rewarding, the students arriving back to school tired but happy with their achievements away from home and school. Many thanks to all the support staff who assisted with making Year 4 camp for the students a positive outdoor learning environment.« Back to IndexNext article in this edition »
