The House Captains, College and Vice Captains and of course the Year 7 Captains made the long trek up to Mount Tamborine earlier this month to join Year 7s. The day was filled with fun activities, the camp concert and some valuable time getting to know the newest members of our Senior School.

On Thursday 8 February a group of 16 College leaders were privileged enough to spend the day at Year 7 Camp. The day saw us work through a rotation of activities with our respective houses, including general fitness, origami, boxercise, meditation/yoga, team building and concert preparation. All of the activities were aimed at teaching valuable lessons in teamwork, cooperation and collaboration, and of course designed for maximum enjoyment.

One of the day’s activities was to work with the 7s to create a skit for the camp concert to be held after dinner. Hosted by the Year 7 Captains - Katie and Michael - the Year 7s from each House, and their Senior House leaders had the task of entertaining the crowd within a 10-minute window. While all performances were excellent, Veivers eventually took out the prize for best skit. Fortunately, the amazing performances in no way outshone the fantastic senior dance (or you could say poorly sung performance) to Justin Bieber’s classic Baby.

Year 7 camp is a great opportunity for all year 7s to bond as a House Group and get to know everyone in their cohort. It is also a really special opportunity to allow the Year 7s to know their Senior Leaders better and form friendships that will last into the future. We trust the Year 7s had as an enjoyable time, as did the seniors who attended.

We can’t wait to work with the Year 7s again in the near future!
