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
