Year 10 Leadership Camp

18/09/2014
​Year 10 Leadership Camp
 
 
On Monday the 25th of August, 49 eager students met bright and early at school to set off on the 2014 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 a raft building competition.
 
Our students met these challenges with great enthusiasm but mixed success. One group now holds the Chaverim record for longest time held balancing on an oversized see saw (16 students balanced for 8min 59 sec) while another group struggled to balance for 10 seconds! The raft building competition was most challenging with many students getting more than a little wet when their rafts broke apart mid race.
 
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. The students were impressive in their ability to operate well outside their comfort zone while undertaking these challenging and at times confronting activities. The support and cooperation these students showed towards each other to complete these difficult tasks was outstanding.
 
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!
