We had a wonderful day yesterday sailing, rope climbing and building rafts to float in the pool. Students loved a night of games outside and in the hall.
After dinner of lasagne, garlic bread, salad and yummy gelato we had a good night sleep and everyone is well and up enjoying the beautiful day, celebrating

As camp drew closer, Year 6 students were getting more and more excited. When the day arrived, everyone boarded the bus and off we went on an adventure
to make unforgettable memories. When we arrived, we got ready for our first activity, the waterslide. Everyone was having so much fun! People were
falling off their mats, crashing into each other, and laughing so much! Next was Rock Climbing, what a great opportunity to challenge yourself, and
trust God! Most people got to the top at least once and even the ones who didn’t make it at least tried. We had a wonderful dinner and finished with
We all woke up to a wonderful sunrise, the cockatoos chirping and a great cooling breeze. We had some breakfast and prepared for abseiling. Once we arrived
at our site, we put on a helmet and harness. Once at the top, looking over the edge of the four and eight metre heights was terrifying. Everyone had
a go and we all enjoyed watching other people accomplish the dismount. The next activity was canoeing, but with strong winds, it had to be cancelled.
In place of this, we had some team challenges. That evening we had a trivia night. This included looking at baby photographs and guessing which teacher
they were and recognising voices of Disney characters. ‘Kapeesh’ was the winning team. That night everyone had a much better sleep than the night before.
What a great night, we all woke up early to play some cricket and touch footy. Breakfast was great. We were lucky enough to have a very nice breakfast,
with some pancakes and cereal. We then all headed to the hall, for Christian Discovery. Some of the leaders shared their testimony on how they became
Christians, and we asked some questions. Our first activity for the day was low ropes, what fun! We had the challenge to trust our teammates so that
when we were having trouble we knew they would catch us. After this, we headed to our cabins, so that we could pack our bags, and be prepared to leave.
We had burgers for lunch and said our last farewells. On the way home, we slept, talked or watched a movie. As soon as we arrived at the school gates,
we were all looking out for our parents, we all missed them so much. Turns out great memories were made at camp, we all laughed and smiled.

After a breakfast of Cocoa Pops and croissants, we headed to Christian Discovery and we learnt that God is really powerful and that we can trust Him. We
also watched a video about Gideon and listened to the story of Jonah. My first activity today was canoeing and I enjoyed splashing my canoeing partner,
Mrs Stead! We ate wraps for lunch outside and Zoe and I spotted a lace monitor that came up and ate the leftover scraps. After lunch, we did rope climbing
and I climbed all the way to the roof. Next was archery and I hit the outside of the target. My friends in my cabin have been really encouraging to

My favourite activity so far has been the waterslide. You can go down with a friend. We were screaming and sometimes sang while going down the slide. This
morning we did archery and it was harder than I thought. I managed to hit the target but my arrow fell out which was disappointing. Yesterday I tried
two activities that I didn’t think I wanted to do, but I did. We did rope-climbing and I was really scared, my instructor and friends encouraged me
and I climbed higher than I thought I would. It was great and I felt like I was flying. Afterwards, we did sailing and fishing. I didn’t want to fish
because I was worried about hurting the fish but I decided to try it and I had fun. I was glad that I didn’t have to catch a fish! I am looking forward
to movie night tonight.
