Year 9/10 HOPE Camp October 22-24

This year the second HOPE (Health and Outdoor Physical Education) camp was held at Camp Somerset . On Tuesday afternoon the students attempted to walk a trail called the Three Peaks where the lantana was very thick and turned most of the groups back after reaching the first peak. However, there was one group, led by Mr Hedges, which didn’t let the lantana beat them and they completed the whole trail! On Wednesday the group participated in canoeing with Mr Frauenfelder (which was very refreshing when they went into the water) and an orienteering course where most did well. The swim in the dam at the end of the day was great. Thursday morning was just a scramble over rocks as they made their way up a dry creek. Then it was back on the buses to return to school.
