YEAR 9 OUTDOOR EDUCATION CAMP
Ms Evans and Ms Bell took the Year 9 Outdoor Ed students to Wilsons Promontory for an overnight camp on Wednesday 25th November to Thursday 26th November 2015. We participated in numerous activities such as surfing, hiking and the challenges of setting up tents. We had a two hour surf lesson at Norman Bay with perfect surf conditions. That night we had all brought our own meals to cook on the trangia stove but unfortunately it was a total fire ban resulting in us going to the shop for dinner and having fish and chips. The weather during the night was wild, meaning no one had much sleep and in the morning we woke up to small rivers in our tent.
Due to the conditions we encountered, our hike up Mt. Oberon was cancelled so we had to find an alternative. Ms Evans decided that Pillar Point would be the place to go. The view was amazing, it looked out over the ocean and back towards the beach. On the way home we were all exhausted so we stopped in Leongatha for a well-deserved lunch break. On behalf of the class, I would like to thank Ms Evans for organising such a terrific camp and it is something we will always remember. Names of all the Year 9 Outdoor Ed students are on the college website.
