This month our Year 9 students got to go on their long-awaited school camp to Tinaroo Environmental Education Centre (TEEC) for three days.
On arrival, staff and students went through an induction, outlining the expectations of TEEC. After that, students moved into the dorms and then it was straight into activities.
Students were split into four groups over the three days. They got to experience a high ropes course where they had to climb up a pole and fit four people onto a tiny platform. This was a particularly challenging activity due to the height involved but each group handled it impeccably. There was much laughter, encouragement, and working together as a team.
Students also got to experience kayaking across Tinaroo Dam which saw students working together as a team as they not only had to use the paddles in a way that kept them on course, but also kept them in their group.
The climbing wall was another activity involving heights that encouraged students to work together as a team and cheer their peers on.
Finally, the last activity was rogaine where students completed an orienteering course in the surrounding bushland. The entire camp was a success with students building relationships with each other and their teachers, as well learning new things about themselves. The students were a credit to the College with many positive comments from TEEC staff. Well done Year 9!!
