Bridgetown Camp School – 2012 on PhotoPeach
This year Mr Phipps and I decided that it would be more beneficial to have the camp in the early stages of the year and also in the summer months. Therefore last week we departed for Bridgetown Camp School to participate in a wide variety of activities to further develop team building skills, leadership, confidence, respect and co-operation.
The trip began with a quick drive on the bus to Bridgetown where we settled in and met the camp coordinators. Captain Collin and Trish were wonderful hosts who looked after us very well with tasty meals, fun games, interesting stories and adventurous activities. The highlight of the camp for me was canoing in Donnelly River and bush bike riding, as well as getting to know students that I hadn’t had a lot to do with previously.
Came home feeling quite tired and 5 kg heavier thanks to being very spoilt by Colleen and Toni in the camp kitchen. Thanks to all the parent volunteers Mrs Bassett, Mrs Clarke, Mr Palmer and Mr Baylis, who made the camp such a great success for Mrs Jones, Mr Phipps and I.
In the early days of February I welcomed back 11 of last years 6’s to the class, but now as year 7’s. To that lovely group of 7’s we also have seven new year 6 students and another ten 7’s. The year has started very well with all students co-operating and getting along with each other very well. Gradually they have been getting used to me and my expectations and routines. I am very sure that it is going to be a great year in Room 13 working as Mrs B’s new Team.
