Head Lights

donna-evansTaking students on camps fills teachers with equal amounts of excitement and trepidation since it’s their unpredictability that engenders both emotions, usually in equal amounts. Whilst as teachers, we engage with a wide range of the ‘unexpected’ on camps, the rewards are immense. Camps provide the opportunity for staff and students to build relationships away from the confines of the school day. Participating in the many activities on offer and seeing each other in the ‘rawness’ of a high ropes course; trekking up a mountain in the rain; or greeting each other first thing in the morning as everyone wakes up together, brings considerable depth to student teacher relationships. As Year 11 head off to Emu Gully today, and Years 4, 7, 8 and 9 go to their camps next week, we wish them well and hope that their experiences strengthen their relationships, not just with each othe,r but the whole School.
