Our Year 5 students spent a challenging yet exciting three days at Tallebudgera Active Recreation Centre. Social, communication and self-management skills were in abundance in all of the activities the students participated in. The Trivia night and the Minute to Win It night were both firm favourites and kept the students smiling and their spirits high. Random room inspections improved the organisation skills of the children who were quick to develop commitment and responsibility.
The students engaged in activities involving teamwork, problem solving and risk-taking. Fears of heights were faced and challenged, with both apprehension and zest, as students participated in the Giant Swing, High Ropes and Rock Climbing challenges. No matter the contest each student stepped up and tried their hardest, keeping a positive attitude and showing curiosity, enthusiasm, commitment and cooperation.
“Camp was amazing! I had so much fun that can’t be explained, even with a million reasons." - Joy Gong
“I really enjoyed the Giant Swing. It was really high and scary but because I stepped out of my comfort zone and gave it a go, I was able to complete it!” – Sophie Carpenter
A very big thank-you to all the members of staff involved in making the 2017 Year 5 camp the wonderful success it was.
