Year 8 group take in the wonders of Phillip Island

Our Year 8 students recently went on camp to Phillip Island, where they explored and learned about the natural and cultural wonders of this breathtaking coastal region.

During the camp, the students visited the Maru Koala and Animal Park, where they had a guided tour of the park's exhibits and got the chance to interact with native Australian animals. They had a unique feeding session with some rarely sighted Tassie Devils and also saw two albino kangaroos.

Besides visiting the animal park, the students also enjoyed other activities such as mini-golf, bowling, rock climbing, and visiting Churchill Island Heritage Farm. They had a blacksmith demonstration and played with baby farm animals.

Kayaking was one of the most exciting activities for the students, as they paddled along the picturesque coastline under sunny skies. They also had a surfing lesson and took on some big waves.

The group set off on a scenic hike to explore the natural wonders of the island, which helped them appreciate the stunning native landscape. The camp was a great opportunity for the students to challenge themselves and bond with students outside their usual friendship groups. Overall, it was an unforgettable experience for all involved.
