2016 Year 5 Camp Day 4

On our final day we packed up and boarded the bus and headed off to watch the pelicans being fed. Before leaving the camp the cleaning staff complimented our children on the tidiness of their rooms, telling us that we were one of the best camp groups that they had ever had. We farewelled Emily our PIAR activity organiser, we were her last group at Phillip Island Adventure Resort as she heads off to NSW and a new job.

After taking a walk along the pier and watching the pelicans being fed a tired but happy group of campers said goodbye to Phillip Island and headed for home. A huge thankyou to everyone who attended, parents, teachers and students. You all contributed to a fantastic camp.

2016 Year 5 Camp Day 3

Day 3 saw the sun shining brightly as we headed off to Smith’s Beach. After lunch we cooked campfire pancakes, searched for insects and tadpoles in the pond and had a well earned swim. Tonight it’s party time as we all get on our camp T-shirts and hit the dance floor.

An important part of camp is the food and judging by the looks on these faces the food is great. When asked who wants seconds nearly every hand went up.dscn1934 dscn1935 dscn1936 dscn1938 dscn1939 dscn1940 dscn1943 dscn1944 dscn1945 dscn1946

Ace-Hi Ranch

On Wednesday the 4th of May, 70 excited Year 4 students carried their pillows and sleeping bags and boarded the bus for their first ever stay – away camp! The buses were filled with nervous laughter as the students made their way along the Mornington Peninsula to the fun-filled horse riding camp – Ace-Hi Ranch!

Students participated in a range of activities designed to develop confidence, team work and a sense of adventure! The giant swing, flying fox and rock climbing wall were just some of the highlights of the fun 3-day camp.

The students also had fun learning how to ride a horse and how to shoot a bow and arrow. It was fantastic to see the students working as a team to make their way through the very tricky obstacle course! Lots of giggling and laughter could be heard in the air as the children tried to swing across the ‘lake of alligators.’

By the end of our three day camp, new friendships were formed, fears were faced (and beaten!) and lots of tired yet happy campers returned home with new found confidence. Congratulations to all the Year 4 campers for their amazing behaviour, manners and attitude!

Year 5 Camp to Phillip Island Adventure Resort

Phillip Island Adventure Resort

6th – 9th October

On Tuesday the 6th of October, the Year 5 students went to Phillip Island Adventure Resort.  Everyone was very excited to arrive.  After saying goodbye to our families we headed off for a long trip but it was all worth it when we saw the sparkling ocean and cabins waiting for us.

We had some delicious food including fish and chips, cheeseburgers, chicken wraps and much more.  We also got to enjoy some magnificent activities that some of us had never tried before.  I know the 18 metre high giant swing scared some people but everyone loved the extremely fast flying-fox.  Other students were very proud of their canoeing skills.  Other activities were circotron, archery, ponding and low ropes.

On Tuesday night we settled down and watched a movie.  On Wednesday night we went for a night walk. On Thursday afternoon we all walked to the beach after buying an ice-cream. We played in the sand and played different sports and had a blast.  Then it was time for our awesome disco on Thursday night – we were wearing our fabulous ‘glow in the dark’ t-shirts that we created earlier in the
