Class 5 Blue Mountains Camp 2022

  Class 5 has returned from an adventurous 6 nights away on their Blue Mountains Camp as part of the ‘Convicts and Explorers’ Main Lesson.  The students spent their time immersed in the beauty of the Blue Mountains, whose dramatic sandstone cliffs and canyons contrast with our sleepy Mid North Coast’s rolling ranges.  The days were spent exploring cliffs and caves, abseiling, mountain biking, bushwalking, singing, playing, listening to tales of history and having an endless gaggle of giggles with their classmates.  When asked what their favourite parts of camp were, the students named each of the outdoor adventure activities,…

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.

They see beautifully crafted buildings, each separate in character, yet part of a unified whole. As one gets to know the school a little better, they may notice that each level is built from different raw materials.
