After a delayed start for one of our busses we all arrived at Portsea camp in time for a delicious lunch of make your own cold meat and salad rolls. We then changed into our beach gear and hit the water, a light drizzle didn’t stop us from having a great time. As the clouds started to build we headed back to camp for afternoon tea, showers, a thunder storm and some indoor games. Dinner was fish and chips and your choice of the most delicious salads you could dream of, followed by ice cream cake for desert. Don’t forget to check in each night to find out what has been happening at camp
Last Tuesday our Year 6 students were invited to attend a preview of Gladstone Park’s musical The Adams Family. All our students thoroughly enjoyed the performance and for those who are hoping to attend Gladstone Park next year it gave them a glimpse of some of the opportunities that will be available to them.

The weather continues to be hot and sunny which means lots of water, sunscreen and hats for our campers. Our day was filled with high ropes, flying fox rides, giant swings and ball games. Lots of challenges to be met and conquered. After lunch it was off to the beach again where throwing buckets of water at each other seemed to be the main game. At dinner time our delicious lasagna was followed by birthday cake as we celebrated 3 birthdays. Tonight it is movie night then a well earned rest.
After a bit of a delayed start we finally got underway and had a smooth run down to camp. On arrival we had lunch, put our bags in our rooms, got changed into our beach gear, slipped, slopped, slapped and headed for the beach. The weather was beautiful, the water was cool and everyone had a ball. Returning to our cabins we showered and sat down to a delicious dinner of chicken schnitzel and salad followed by merainge topped ice cream. With dinner out of the way it was down to the oval for a game of cricket or just relaxing. Currently everyone is playing 1 minute to win it (I will post photos of this mad game tomorrow) Its been a busy day.
The day started off gloomy and wet as we boarded the bus for our visit to Healesville Sanctuary. Our aim was to gain some inspiration for the creative writing which we are preparing for this years writer’s Festival. As we drew closer to Healesville the skies brightened and the rain stopped. Then we were in for a treat as we watched raptors soar, corellas talk and brolgas dance. Hopefully some of what we saw will shine through in our writing. We even saw some very strange blue winged birds.
The year 6’s celebrated the engagement of Ms D’Angelo with a surprise party today. Year 6 students are very good at keeping a secret as she was totally unaware that anything was going on.
