The Year 8 Cape Bridgewater Coastal Camp proved to be a very successful and enjoyable camp for all involved. The students were provided with the opportunity to participate in a range of outdoor educational activities coordinated by qualified staff. These activities included surfing, sand boarding, geo caching, seal tours, snorkelling and kayaking. The surfing proved to be a highlight for the students as they were coached by staff from “GO SURF” on how to ride the perfect wave. A number of students were able to showcase their excellent surfing skills in these sessions. This year the students were lucky to have an extra surfing session, which enabled them to refine and improve their surfing skills. We certainty have some great young surfers in Year 8.
The Seal Tour was another popular activity with the students as they were able to get within metres of hundreds of seals in a glorious environment. Sand boarding was another big highlight for the students as they were able to race down the sand dunes at a great pace.
The night activities were also well supported by the students with a Disco on the last night proving to be a hit with both the students and staff. A big thanks to DJ Dave Daly on his organisation of this. Overall, the students should be congratulated on their participation in the activities and the excellent way they represented St Mary MacKillop College. The staff must also be thanked on their excellent organisation and effort they put in to make sure the camp ran so smoothly.
