Year 3-6 Kangaroobie Camp

October 29, 2020

I am writing this not long after returning from the Year 3-6 camp at Kangaroobie on Wednesday afternoon. I feel tired and I’m looking forward to sleeping in my own bed tonight, but most of all I feel energized and enthusiastic. The energy and enthusiasm comes from being with our students and their teachers for 3 days.

The students demonstrate their abilities and resilience. They are given an opportunity to shine outside of the confines of a classroom, and it amazes me that some students truly step out and show us what they are capable of. We also get a glimpse as to what your grocery bill each week must look like!

Our teachers on camp, Mr Adrian Burn and Mr Julian Gollasch, are to be commended. Their care for your children has no limit. They went above and beyond each day to really get the best out of each child, and they took time to congratulate achievement, empathise with touches of homesickness and demonstrate the deepness of their understanding of the students as individuals.
