Year 12 Geography Camp

25/06/2018
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 with better than perfect weather. The comments below speak for themselves!

-“Camp was one of the best three days, seeing so many different species of wildlife and plants that you don’t usually see back home. - Katie
-I feel as though our class is a little closer, which is nice. - I feel as though our class is a little closer, which is nice. - Jaydin
-I really enjoyed the camp mainly because we had heaps of free time and went on walks through the pretty rainforest. - I really enjoyed the camp mainly because we had heaps of free time and went on walks through the pretty rainforest. - Cleo
-It was a relief to go out into the mountains and away from the bother of regular life and spend some time getting familiar with a truly beautiful landscape filled with a sea of unique greenery and wild life. - Markus
 
Of course, a great camp is a joint effort and huge thanks must go to Mr Boxall for all his hard work as well as Julie, our trusty driver from Coast and Country Coaches.  Most of all, a big thank-you must also go to you, the students.
