Year 5’s Arrabi Lodge Camp (2016)

The Year 5 students recently attended the annual camp to Arrabri Lodge in Warbuton. All staff members who attended the camp were extremely proud of the students as they represented Alamanda College with pride.

Students rallied around each other and engaged in different activities which consisted of Making Damper, Ropes Adventure Course, Orienteering, Giant Swing, Flying Fox, Archery, Mini-Golf

This camp encouraged the students to be Open-Minded, Risk-Takers and clear Communicators as students were required to work cooperatively most of the time to complete assigned tasks such as; setting up for breakfast, snack, lunch and dinner.

Some of the highlights from the camp were the Night-walk and roasting marshmallows along with digging for gold in our river walk and the Bush dance.

All students and staff who attended the camp thoroughly enjoyed their time and would like to thank all of the parent helpers who joined us on our journey.

On our way home, we stopped into Healesville Sanctuary Wildlife Park where we were fortunate enough to listen to an endangered species presentation on the Platypus and then an exhilarating show on ‘Birds of the Prey’.

All students were Principled and Balanced and we commend them on their behaviour and beautiful manners.

With 4 weeks to the end of Term, we inquire into the central idea of ‘Economic activities determine the world we live in’. We take a deep look into the following lines of inquiry – needs vs wants, cause and effect of economic activity, the world connectedness through money and informed consumers. Students are showing enthusiasm towards this unit.
