Year 10 Leadership Camp.

Year 10 Leadership Camp.
 
 
On Monday the 19th of August, 43 eager students met bright and early at school to set off on the 2013 Year 10 Leadership Camp to Chaverim Outdoor Education Centre near Bundaberg. Upon arriving at the camp, the students participated in several team-building activities, including a low ropes course, problem solving challenges, and most challenging of all, a raft building competition.
 
The rafts were varied in quality and saw several of the groups having to swim furiously across a muddy dam just to finish the challenge!
 
The second and third days of camp saw students rotate through three challenges, including canoeing, a high ropes course and a ‘Leap of Faith’ from a small platform at the top of a tree. Many of the students found these activities difficult and confronting, but worked together to overcome challenges. The most impressive part was the way that the groups worked together and encouraged each other all the way through until the end.
 
There is no doubt that the future leaders of our school and community are within this group of students. They worked together as teams and displayed every leadership quality required for success.
 
Well done Year 10s, once again, you’ve done Toolooa proud!
