Camp 2016

On the 7th to 9th November, the year 5/6 class went to camp at Stanley River Environmental Centre. Along with the Mount Mee kids, year sixes from Delaneys creek joined the fun as well. On the day of arrival at camp, the sky was blue, the sun was bright, and the kids were as excited as ever. There were 2 aboriginal named groups that the children were in. Maiwar for the Mount Mee kids, and Gainbe for the Delaneys.
The day was spent playing games like tag (where Lochlen and Miss Carlile accidentally hit heads), and heaps of ball games. Soon enough it was bed time. The next day was when the real fun started. Dinner was delicious chicken strudels with salad.
The next day was planned for everyone to go canoeing. So after a scrumptious breaky made lovingly by Mr Smith and Bobby, everyone skipped down the hill, ready for fun at the huge magnificent lake (connecting to Somerset Dam). After practising canoeing and a couple of games on the water, the wind started to pick up. A little while later the wind picked up even more, so it was decided that 2 canoes would be strapped together, and the people sitting on the front had to stand (try to keep balanced) and hold a sail up that would hopefully catch the wind and push the boat forward. After a long and exciting day of canoeing and steak burgers for dinner, it was bed time again.
The next day it was very hot, so plans of hiking up a huge mountain sadly had to be cancelled. But with all the children’s approval, canoeing, getting wet and cooling down was the new plan. At 12:30 that afternoon, it was sadly time to say goodbye to the other teachers and friends we had made, as the bus arrived to take all the happy campers home!!!
