Year 6 Students' Incredible Cairns Camp


In Week 1 of Term 4, King's Year 6 students ventured to Cairns to enjoy an amazing week in tropical North Queensland. Zelri Marias and Noah Morichovitis (6RS) shared their cohort's unforgettable experience -

Last week, the Year 6 students went to Cairns for our Year 6 camp. Our theme was “Into the Deep.” The Year 6 students had plenty of activities to enjoy. We went to Hartley’s Crocodile Adventure, Cairns Aquarium and were challenged at the Zoom Wildlife & Adventure Dome. At RainForeStation we enjoyed canvas painting (Aboriginal dot art), the majestic butterfly sanctuary, an army duck ride through the rainforest, learning how to throw a boomerang, watching the Pamagirri Aboriginal Dance Show and taking a train ride through Kuranda Natural Railway, where we looked over the amazing Barron Falls. 

Our trip highlight was the day out to the reef on the Ocean Marine World Pontoon. We enjoyed free time snorkelling and exploring, venturing on a semi-submersible glass-bottom boat explorer, and an educational lesson with a real Marine Biologist on the reef... not to mention an amazing lunch! Devotions were also a huge highlight. In groups, we shared five things that shaped our lives into becoming the people we are today and talked about things that may be holding us back. It was an incredible feeling to be able to experience all of Year 6 worshipping and pouring out their hearts to God. Our group leaders each gave us a ‘Word for You’ message that they felt God wanted us to hear to better ourselves, which was really special. 

We want to thank our amazing teachers for taking us to Cairns! It was a great experience we will never forget.
