On Monday 12 December, the Year 7 cohort went on their long awaited camp to Phillip Island Adventure Resort. This camp was a great end to our first full year of secondary school, along with the perfect opportunity to spend time with our new homegroups and with existing friends and peers. Staff and students were able to challenge themselves and get involved in a range of activities throughout the camp that included a twin flying fox, high ropes course, canoeing, raft making, initiatives course, team rescue games, giant swing, LaserStrike, and a trip to the Koala Conservation Centre  where everyone saw at least one koala.

On the first night, students were given the opportunity to either watch a movie or go on a beach walk including a sunset picture. Both activities were a success, as staff and students enjoyed their preferred activity. The second night involved a trivia competition with students competing in their houses against each other and a table of staff. While the staff were the winners, a good time was had by all. A room full of students singing and dancing along to Mariah Carey’s “All I want for Christmas” will not be easily forgotten by all who were present. Well done to the newly appointed Junior Campus house captains who were their teams biggest cheerleaders.

While Phillip Island’s weather was not always nice, we were able to complete all activities with sunscreen, hats, jackets and insect repellant at the ready. A great way to end the 2022 school year.
