Year 10's Incredible Cairns Camp


In Week 4 of Term 2, our Year 10 students jetted off to tropical Cairns for an unforgettable North Queensland experience. Their tour included snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef, exploring Port Douglas, hiking at Mossman Gorge and viewing Cairns from the Kuranda Sky Rail. The cohort also enjoyed an exciting visit to the Cairns Zoom and Wildlife Dome where they ziplined over a crocodile, as well as some less adrenaline-charged activities, like relaxing around the resort pool with their friends. Head Chaplain, Mr Muir, and our Chaplaincy team, did an incredible job hosting the nighttime chapels, and it was wonderful to see how respectful and mature our group of students were throughout the trip. Travelling to Cairns gave Year 10 students the chance to increase their confidence with more daring activities, gain some perspective, develop growth and independence and make new connections with other students in their year level. A BIG thank you to the teachers who gave up their time to make this trip possible for our students. Well done Year 10 - it was a pleasure to share this experience with you and I will personally remember the time spent snorkelling around the Great Barrier Reef as one of the highlights of my school camp experiences.
