This energy rippled through our school on Wednesday and through…

Class 8 Island Camp 2022

  Class 8 have been incredibly patient with the postponement of the annual Island Camp, which under normal circumstances would have taken place last year during Class 7. The group boarded the Lady Musgrave Experience from Bundaberg expecting a week of white sands, sunsets and a well-earned reprieve from the daily deluge of rainfall along the Mid North Coast. Unfortunately, Huey had other plans.  Class 8 were faced with howling South Easterly winds and regular downfalls throughout the week. The group banded together to make the most of any glimpse of sunshine and are to be commended for their positive outlook…
