Two of Year 10 students reflect on their recent Year 10 Camp experience...
On the 16th of March, the 2017 Year 10 cohort went to Outward Bound to get to know each other a little better and to develop leadership skills in a variety of situations. At Trinity, everyone aspires to be a leader and be the best possible version of themselves. We all had the opportunity to participate in a plethora of activities that aimed to push us outside of our comfort zones, and the leaders encouraged us to do just that. The staff members that accompanied us on the camp made sure that groups were mixed up regularly, giving us all the chance to get to know everyone.
Within the “best of all group” we were given group activities that brought us together and allowed us to celebrate our successes as a united family. Trampling through the tropical areas of Australia, we were greeted by a range of animals, from brown snakes to owls. Together, we all unanimously agreed that the grueling 5 hour hike up (and down!) Mt. Warning was a highlight of the trip, an achievement that will be cherished in our memories forever.
I am sure the Year 10 cohort will celebrate and remember this unforgettable experience through their lives.
“Camp for me was really special with everyone in all the groups bonding really well over the 6 days. Considering that we did over 50 kilometres of biking and hiking it actually wasn't all that hard because we all supported one another. No one teased or belittled anyone else and we all helped one another out, be it physically or mentally.” – Alex Mills
