Year 6 Camp – Hometown Tourists

During Week 3 this term, we had the pleasure of taking the Year 6 students on camp. On day one, we hiked to the top of Mt Clarence to pay our respects to servicemen and women who took part in past conflicts. We then had a tour of the National ANZAC Centre and explored the surrounding forts as well. Then it was time to head to the Windfarm and marvel at the massive structures producing power for Albany. After setting up at Rotary Camp, it was time for a Quiz Night and congratulations to our winners – the Foodies group.
Day two was action packed as well. We spent over half a day at Whaleworld, discovering the grizzly past of whaling in our city and also enjoying the beautiful grounds that have been rehabilitated with gorgeous native gardens. The afternoon was spent at Middleton Beach, enjoying a delicious hot chocolate, a walk along the boardwalk and a play in the park. That night students relaxed at our movie night.
Day three was fortunately an inside day as the weather was not kind to us. We enjoyed a movie and popcorn at Orana Cinemas and then a really fun afternoon dressing up at Wacky Golf. The action continued that night with our Disco and some amazing dance moves where shared. Our final day on camp was a day at Camp Quaranup doing rafting and rogaining. All the kids were great on camp and some were absolute superstars! Our camp photos can be seen here.
