YEAR SIX STUDENTS GET READY FOR KAYAKING AT TALLEBUDGERA CAMP

By Madeleine B and Charlotte D

School was out for the week, as Year 6 students from North Arm State School spent their days working in teams and building confidence at Tallebudgera beach camp.

With a wide range of activities including tobogganing, bush walks and tree top challenges, the students were itching to jump on the journey and have a ball.

Year 6 teacher David McIntosh said camp was a great end of year experience for students before heading to high school.

“Tallebudgera camp is for having fun, building self-confidence, finding your inner hero and learning through a challenging and physically active environment,” Mr Mcintosh said.

Since returning from camp students have found their inner hero through challenging themselves and pushing themselves to the max.

Year 6 student Julian H said the skills learned at camp would help students throughout the rest of Year 6 and prepare them for Year 7 which is just around the corner.

“Camp was really awesome because it encouraged us to work together collaboratively and increased our self esteem throughout challenging activities,” Julian said.
