Year 9 Camp

Our Year 9 students had a wonderful time recently at Camp Howqua. They undertook a range of activities, including Survivor, archery, waterslide, high ropes, disc golf, low ropes and flying fox. They extended themselves and met all challenges with courage and determination. The students showed great teamwork and collaboration, as well as individual resolve and bravery. It takes a lot to step outside of one's comfort zone, and our students were able to demonstrate this time and time again over the course of the camp. Well done to all! 

Thank you to the staff who accompanied the students on camp, your willingness to attend and support the students is much appreciated. Thank you also to our wonderful Year 9 students, for fully embracing all that the camp had to offer.

Student Amelia Bennett gives her reflection on camp:

Year 9 camp is a wonderful adventure full of excitement and joy. During this camp, you encounter new adventures and maybe even new friends. My experience during camp is filled with many loving memories that I will cherish in the years to come, I hope that every year 9 who goes to Sacred Heart gets to experience this as this was the best camp I have gone on. You can see how much time our teachers have taken out of their schedule to give the best camp they can.

If I had to pick one word to describe year 9 camp it would be thrilling. Before this camp, I had never even experienced high ropes which is now one of my favourite activities from the entire camp. 

For any future students who may be reading this I say give it a go, you never know until you try, because until you have taken that step into the unknown you may never know what it would be like to experience something until that opportunity is gone. You have the freedom to enjoy yourself so don’t give this up.
