A unique experience for Year 7s who were taken on a Treasure Hunt this term. Year 12s led the way, organising an adventure-filled activity that the whole cohort could be involved in.

Year 7 had fun with our friends in Year 12 with an entertaining treasure hunt on 13 March. We went from room to room participating in video games, quizzes and Chinese whispers, it then ended off with a delicious sausage sizzle. It was a great way to spend our time through lunch having fun and it really got everyone involved and having a great time, except for the running part.

I think it was a great way to put our knowledge and skills to the test. It was very competitive throughout the teams and it was a great distraction from all assessments and classes. I believe everyone had fun and enjoyed it very much.

I would like to say thank you to all who helped out, to Brock, Holly and all the seniors who made this treasure hunt possible, it was a great experience for all of us.

Dear Diary,

Today was the day OF THE TREASURE HUNT! Brock and Holly began it with a clue. The clue led us to our first destination where we all completed a team activity. I was lucky enough to be in team D! My team smashed all the activities and we all had a blast. After a crazy time running around and completing all the different activities we finished the hunt off with a delicious sausage sizzle.

The next day Brock announced the final results. WE CAME SECOND WOOOHOOO!!!!!!!! (with another two teams). I had so much fun meeting all the captains and hanging out with my friends! I can’t wait for another fun experience, like this one!

The Year 7 captains, Brock and Holly organised a special event for our cohort last Wednesday, 13 March. It was a massive treasure hunt! We all started off with a clue to a room and once we figure it out, we went to the room to do a challenge. Everyone was categorised by their last name and into groups. Once you completed the challenge you got another clue to another room and so on. Every time you won a challenge you got a point. The group with the most point WON!

It was super fun and enjoyable and I would love to do it again!
