Term 1 events:
School Camp: Roses Gap 19th- 23rd February
From the 19th – 23rd of February our Grade 6 students were lucky enough to participate in the annual Grade 6 Camp to Roses Gap. Throughout the camp, students were encouraged to participate in a variety of outdoor adventure activities such as High & Low Ropes courses, Rock-climbing, Abseiling, Hut making, Raft building, Archery and last but not least the traditional night walk held by Mr. Martin.
Although a success, the camp wasn’t without its challenges; students constantly faced challenges that pushed them out of their comfort zone both mentally and physically, in a safe and supported environment. These challenges tested the endurance and resilience of students and prompted some fantastic responses!
Overall, the Camp was a huge success and full of memorable moments for both students and staff. The Grade 6 team would like to extend a huge thank you to everybody involved for helping make the camp run smoothly.

GALA Day – European Handball:
Last Friday, the 4th of May, our Grade 6 students made the trip to Fawkner Park to participate in the first ever European Handball Gala day. The day provided many challenges due to the wild and inconsistent weather. Nevertheless, the students are to be commended for their resilience shown throughout the day.
Overall, the day was a tremendous success; the Grade 6 team would like to extend a huge congratulations to everybody involved, in particular Miss Anna and Mr. Steve for their continued support and effort organising the day. Well done everybody!
On Monday the 14th of May, our grade 6 students were lucky enough to participate in a Skateboarding session ran by the YMCA. This provided students with a great opportunity to try something new, whilst also allowing some of our more passionate skaters to show off their skills! Thank you to Darren and Miss. Anna for organising the day.
