New Zealand Camp – a note from Mr Summerhayes:
Wow – what an experience for all involved! While this camp has been built up over time, as a first time traveller I was overwhelmed at just how great it was. For our students to have this opportunity is a credit to those who pioneered the concept 8 years ago and to our school community for maintaining the momentum. The camp is filled with rich learning opportunities, extending to leadership and personal growth. It was pleasing to see the bonds that were formed between all campers, particularly our Grade 6 students, as well as the confidence that continued to develop throughout the camp. The Scrapbook will be a masterpiece with students putting in a lot of effort into their reflections, using our 6 + 1 Writing Traits. We now look forward to putting together our movies to share at our New Zealand Camp Sponsors Dinner on the 15th November. We will share these movies through Facebook after our dinner. To everyone that has supported in any way, we sincerely thank you. To all of our travellers, thank you for being such an amazing groups and representing our school so positively. We will now work with our Grade 5 families to get the ball rolling for 2017.
