In week 5 Mr D’s Year 3/4 class and Ms Paley’s 4/5 class went on a 3-day camp to Woodhouse Activity Centre in Piccadilly. On arrival students were housed in the Old House which some of the Governors of SA used as their residence in times gone past, and the old bunk house.
The days were jam-packed full of outdoor activities. On the first day students were taken to Challenge Hill where many skills were tested. Some of the stations involved scaling over obstacles, crawling through “whale bones” and balancing on posts (or else face being eaten by pirhannas!). There were slides to hurtle down and ropes to be traversed across Cox Creek.
Students also attended a local community Remembrance Day ceremony.
In their spare time students adored playing in the creek and being involved in table tennis tournaments.
At night children went on a night walk and on the last night a talent show was held where Mr North finished with his rendition of “You Can’t Shove Your Granny Off the Bus”.
Many thanks to all parents who gave up their time to make this camp “the best days ever” in the words of some of the students. In particular the parents who provided exquisite healthy food to tide over the voracious feeders.
