What has been happening in the Middle School?

WOW! What an amazing camp experience it was for the Middle School. During the three days we learnt and experienced a lot of new things. New friendships were made and current friendships were strengthened. You can read a few of the recounts from your children in this newsletter. From a school perspective, we were very proud of how all of the students showed Teamwork, Integrity and Respect while on camp and challenged themselves to try new things.

The next two weeks will be filled with the swimming program at Don Tatnell Leisure Centre on the corner of Warren Road and Brisbane Terrace.

Our swimming times, if you were interested in coming to watch are:
-Middle Hardie: 9:30am
-Middle McCallum/Beer: 10:00am

Middle School Camp Reflections

I thought that camp was AWESOME!!! I loved the food and all of the activities. The activities were Hut Building, Archery, Giant Swing, Orienteering, Photo Trail and Ropes Course. It was so much fun, I didn’t want to get on the bus and go home.

Camp was amazing!!! There was so much to do and the activities were great. After the bus ride we moved our bags into our cabins, everyone was filled with excitement. The food was delicious, my favourite meal was spaghetti! We went to the lighthouse on Thursday. It was really cool, did you know that Round the Twist was filmed there? My favourite part of camp was the Giant Swing. I went to the top and had lots of fun swinging for a long time.
