It has been a very exciting two weeks in the Year 3 team with our successful trip to Camp Oasis. All campers thrived on the challenges this camp experience has provided as we observed students supporting one and other to achieve their goals. Students had the opportunity to take risks in the tasks they participated in which included, rock climbing, initiative games, low rope activities, interacting with reptiles and making candles. Many of these activities are designed to get students thinking in groups, working together and building trusting relationships. Throughout their stay, students were very respectful using their manners and listening skills to ensure they understood important instructions so that they could safely enjoy their stay at Camp Oasis.
This experience supported students in building skills in the areas of organisation, independence and responsibility as they interacted with the facilities the camp provided. Ed’s Alley was one of the more popular games to play during free time. This game allowed students to organise themselves in an honest and respectful manner when players golf balls were knocked out.
Cabins as always, are much apart of the excitement as students spend time together in a warm room sharing stories of their day.
We all enjoyed the beautiful surroundings of the Australian bush, sighting many native birds such as kookaburras and rosellas.
We want to thank our families for returning all the necessary information on time in the lead up to camp. This really supported teachers with organising the camp and providing the correct care for each child. Back at school, students have been reflecting on their time at camp through recount writing. Many students are deciding to present these in their portfolios and perhaps during the Student Led Conferences.
