Year 9 Camp

Congratulations Year 9 on a fantastic camp at the Outdoor Education Camp at Morriset!

Below is a collection of adjectives that I would use to describe year 9 on camp:

Busy, active, talkative, funny, noisy, talkative, tiring, sleepless, talkative, helpful, collaborative and above all, talkative!

Year 9 are a social bunch, but they are also a group of go-getters. They were not only willing to give everything a go, but they were all ready to support each other and their teachers through the challenges too. They proved their reliance on technology too, by wifi hunting during the entire trip and ensuring they had enough power boards to charge a household worth of devices. We had many comments from the camp staff about what a quirky group of really nice students they are and we are very proud of their efforts.

Here are some of students’ thoughts on the camp:

Jake S: “I didn’t like it… I loved it!” 

Angela M: “You don’t realise how high the high ropes are until you’re up there!” 

Rebecca R: “We bonded.” 

Alistair L: “Camp teaches you to tackle problems head on.” 

Drae N: “Very exhausting, in a good way.”

Tyler P: “A good experience.

Matthew Savino and Alex Tse have summed up the last three days beautifully:

“Year 9 camp was a lot of fun. We did a lot of great activities and got to meet many new people. The campsite was different from what some people expected, but in the end it was a blast.

The activities challenged us to face our fears and allowed us to work as a team. They had us flying down a hill and completing obstacle courses, both twelve metres above the ground. We fell into cold muddy waters in the survival challenge and the mud world. These activities helped us to try something new that we may not have been comfortable with before. It was good to see that everyone participated and had a good time.

The cabins didn’t appear appealing in the beginning but turned out to be pretty good. They were different from what people expected with every one crammed into a small space and only one power point, but these problems were overcome by people working together to make the cabins more comfortable.

The people who ran our camp were really nice and helped us with any problems we had. Without them, the camp would have been very different.

After all the fun we had, we were all left feeling very tired from all the fantastic activities and late nights. We had a great time and would like to thank the teachers and instructors for a great week.”

Thank you and congratulations to Mrs Le for her fantastic organisation, and to Mr Wilson and Miss Osborne for the late nights and early, jam packed days.
