Year 9 Calling Camp

Part of a journey is to acknowledge that things will change, you will expect some downfalls but it is how you react to those situations that makes you a whole person. Our camp was a great example of how people can put differences aside and work together to achieve an outcome. Students participated well in the different levels of challenges that were offered to them, being singing or dancing in a talent quest in front of peers, completing team challenges to earn the most points, letting go of issues and making a fresh start.  It was extremely rewarding and encouraging to welcome parents for dinner that had been prepared by students. Students were welcoming and were able to have some quiet time with their parents to thank them for all that they have learnt so far in life. It was a good opportunity for parents to hear how grateful their children are of them and how they can continue being life-long mentors to their child. The letters that were distributed to students allowed them to have some quiet reflective time (alone) and contemplate everything that their parents wrote in these special letters, hopefully creating some discussion upon their return home. We thank parents for your support in this program.
Overall, it was a great emotional camp that was much needed by students and parents. Well done to all who invested their time and effort into preparing and participating in the camp.
