Yesterday was a very busy first day for our year 10 students. Split into 2 groups, group A did a high rope course and hike. Group A had the exhilarating challenge of tackling the high ropes course. Students bravely stepped out of their comfort zone on the zip line, monkey bridge and puzzling A challenge. Every single student even did the Leap of Faith - an adrenaline pumping jump from an elevated platform high up in the forest.
Group B did an impressive hike through the pine forest and impressed us with their resilience on what was a tough walk. The students then had to overcome their fears and abseil down a 25 metre rock face. The students impressed us again with their bravery and support of each other. The evening was well spent with some music and marshmallows around the fire before an early bed after a busy day.
The students of both group A and B had a great fun at raft building activity in the afternoon where they shown an amazingly collaborative team effort. All 8 teams together made their own raft design to meet the requirements of being buoyant and doable to fit 3 people to paddle along the race track twice. Despite getting soaked, everyone had a great time spent with lots of laughters.
