Year 9/10 Camp - Fairbairn Dam

In week 5 of Term 3, our Year 9 & 10 students went to Camp Fairbairn Outdoor Education Centre and participated in a range of activities to build their teamwork, resilience and problem solving skills. Students completed a 4 kilometre canoe across Fairbairn Dam where they needed to work together and communicate with one another.  They also challenged themselves on the high ropes course where they had to support each other by controlling safety equipment and providing positive encouragement to each other. The campers participated in group challenge activities where they problem solved different challenges in a whole team environment to develop teamwork and leadership capabilities. Students had an enjoyable time working in small groups to navigate a course of 100 markers throughout the Fairbairn bushland. The task was to use a basic map to locate as many markers across the area as they could.
The students did a wonderful job of self-maintaining their campsite. This included keeping their tent area tidy as well as prepping, cooking and cleaning for all meals. Miss Kramer and Miss Matthews were impressed with the level of respect, maturity and cooperation our students displayed. It was fantastic to see the leadership potential within this great group of students.
