Over 40 students in our Award Program came together on the second-last Wednesday of the term to have some fun and celebrate completing the final aspects of their Awards. Despite it being a cold afternoon, the students got involved in the activities; they raced around two orienteering courses, working their basic map reading skills hard. They also worked on their trust, support and were involved in small group work on the slackline task and treasure hunt.
It was great to see the students being active, working and having some social time together! The only thing that would have made this better would have been if we were camped in the outdoors and were coming together over a campfire to tell stories and reflect. Fingers crossed that the students who maintain their Awards will be able to experience that next year. At the end of the evening we were able to recognise all of the Award students and it is when you see them altogether you actually realise the massive number of students who were working through this program; an excellent number across the different year levels.
Well done to all those involved and a special mention to Nicola Boyle, Anne Wilkins and Jeremy Ng for all their help and support with the program this year!
