Year 7 Camp

30/03/2017
Year 7 Camp 2017
 
After much discussion it has been decided that the Year 7 camp this year will not be held. Instead it will be held as a Year 8 camp in 2018.
 
There were two key reasons for this decision. Firstly, many of the Year 6 students from 2016 here this year, attended the same camp late last year with Kin Kora SS. Asking a large number of families to effectively duplicate this activity six months later seemed problematic. Secondly, by holding the camp over until Year 8 we are allowing families a longer opportunity to prepare for what is ultimately a very enjoyable but also quite expensive activity. Additionally, the reintroduction of a Year 8 camp sits well in our own camp program which involves a Year 10 leadership camp. This puts all three camps: Year 6, Year 8 and Year 10 two years apart, which we feel evens out the financial impact of these activities.
 
Instead of the Year 7 camp we will be conducting some leadership days and ideally all students will attend. These will occur mid term 2 and be held in the Gladstone area. We are still finalising details but envision a very small cost to cover buses and possibly lunch. More information will be provided in the first weeks of term 2.
 
Please contact me if you wish to discuss this matter further.
