Year 5 & 6 Camps

I had the fant​astic opportunity to join Year 5 on camp for the afternoon of their first day of camp at PGL Kindilan, Redland Bay. The afternoon held the first activities which included abseiling and a flying fox. Regardless to say these were popular activities but they also provided some with the challenge of overcoming some fears. I witnessed several students trying to push through their fears. Some tried really hard climbing the stairs to abseiling several times to get over their fear or you could see the shake in their hands as they were releasing the rope to begin their descent. It was truly amazing to see some of these students dig deep and try really hard. As someone who is not a fan of heights I understand the challenge. Next was the flying fox and this one was very popular. The most common phrase I heard here was “Can I go again?”.

The Year 5s were great representatives of St Mary’s using manners and helping out where they could. I left the staff for their night activities and here’s hoping they got off to sleep quickly!

In two weeks, the Year 6 students are off to Tallebudgera where they too will get the opportunity to try new things and challenge themselves!
