Geography Camp

For many students, our Geography Camp in the Bunya Mountains is one of the highlights of five years of schooling and our trip in May this year was no exception.  I say camp, but the reality is with comfy chalets, roaring fires, full bathroom and kitchen facilities and even digital TV; the word ‘camp’ just doesn’t seem to fit!
Our purpose was to explore some of the management issues to do with this wonderful national park and in doing so we bushwalked, gazed over scenic views, undertook vegetation surveys and collated statistical information about rainfall and visitor numbers to the park. All very hands on and all very real!  Of course there was plenty of free time too.
In total, as always, we had a wonderful time…but don’t believe me: the comments below speak for themselves!
Ø  ‘The best camp ever!’ (Everyone!)
Ø  ‘Never had so much fun: wish we could do it again and again!’ (Everyone!)
Ø  ‘Couldn’t have been better!’ (Everyone!)
Ø  ‘100% amazing camp. Best way to spend our last camp of Year 12. The company was amazing; the surroundings were breathtaking; all around, the best time!’ (Emily T)
Ø  ‘Great scenery and the best bonding experience ever in five years of high school.’ (Victoria-Leigh)
Ø  ‘The icy weather just meant an excuse for more hot chocolate and more wood on the fire! I’d do it all again without hesitation.’ (Indigo)
Of course, a great camp is a joint effort and huge thanks must go to Mrs Carter for all her hard work, as well as Bob, our trusty driver from Coast and Country Coaches.  Most of all, a big thanks must also go to the students.
