Year 10 Camp

One of the highlights of our Year 10 Wellbeing Program was our first Year 10 Camp held from 8 – 11 April. Students and staff were provided with an exciting, memorable, engaging and invaluable learning experience!

The six students involved had the unique opportunity to develop and use their personal, behavioural, social, and cognitive skills to promote a sense of personal identity and wellbeing.

The students travelled in from as far as Yulara to the Adventure Bound NT camp site which is situated on ~1000 acres of natural bush land bordered by the Mary River National Park and Mary River flood plains.

Our students and staff were actively involved in the following activities that targeted enhancing respectful relationships:

  • 160 metre flying fox (the largest in the NT)
  • high ropes and low ropes courses
  • abseiling
  • rock climbing
  • swimming
  • crate climbing
  • various team building and initiative activities.

Students' favourite part of the camp was making new friends and building stronger relationships with their teachers. A very funny moment involved watching Mr Weekes trying really hard to light a fire!

A big congratulations to all the students involved who should be really proud of their enthusiasm and resilience skills demonstrated! It is evident in the following short clip that highlights some of the activities completed.

Many thanks to the following NTSDE staff for their support: David Armstrong, Andrew Weekes, Will Hoffmann, Stephanie Henry and Toni Smid.
