On Thursday 9 February half of this year’s College leaders hopped on a bus and made our way to the Year 7 Camp at Mount Tamborine. The short bus ride was extended slightly because our bus did not deal the hills very well and broke down when we were 15 minutes from the camp site.

Not to worry, as Mr Sayer came to our rescue and we finally arrived at the Mount Tamborine camp site just in time for lunch.

After lunch the leaders were spilt into our respective Houses and went with the Year 7s in each House to do a number of different activities. We completed meditation, boxing, orienteering, bird watching, concert practice and many other fun activities. After each House had finished their activity, we had a delicious piece of chocolate cake for afternoon tea and a quick break. The Houses then separated so the Year 7s could prepare for the concert that was happening after dinner. The concert was an amazing experience for all teachers, students, leaders and, I’m sure, our Gap students.

All five Houses displayed wide ranges of talent, humour and emotion throughout the night, however Franklin House came out on top with a great performance about a blind marriage skit. After that the Year 12 leaders played out a skit showing the stereotypes of each Year Level yet to come. We also had an amazing performance by one of our Gap students, TK, who sang Mercy by Shawn Mendes, his national anthem and his school song. Overall, I’m sure it will be one of the most memorable nights the Year 7s will look back on in the future.
