Looking back on what was an enormously successful year 8 trip gives me great satisfaction, It was wonderful to see the students working together to develop new skills together outside the classroom. I feel these experiences have really helped our students develop their independence.The perseverance shown during some of the activities was truly admirable. From developing their kayaking prowess to learning to navigate with GPS (and dodging grumpy cows) there were always happy faces. However, it was not all work! It was immensely pleasurable to see the care and respect with which our students treat their peers and others they meet. This was particularly evident when we arrived at the local school and participated in different activities with the students from the school. The trip was also successful in helping to form some new friendships and made year 8 an even closer community.
