CAMP­ING EX­CUR­SION A HIT WITH STU­DENTS

South Burnett Times - - SOUTH BURNETT SCHOOL NEWS -

AS PART of the Tin­goora cur­ricu­lum, dur­ing the last week of term three, stu­dents in Year 3- 6 par­tic­i­pated in a week- long school camp.

Stu­dents pitched their own tents and camped at the Nudgee Beach En­vi­ron­men­tal Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre. At the cen­tre they par­tic­i­pated in ac­tiv­i­ties such as fish­ing, ca­noe­ing, search­ing for an­i­mal life at the beach, bush­walk­ing and indige­nous ac­tiv­i­ties.

A high­light of their time at Nudgee Beach was a les­son from Phil Bres­lin, the “Wild Sur­vivor”, who showed them how to make fire us­ing sticks. An­other favourite ac­tiv­ity was a trip to the ice skat­ing rink, where ev­ery­one tried the ac­tiv­ity for the very first time. Later in the week they vis­ited South Bank, en­joy­ing the mu­seum and Scien­cen­tre, as well as a swim at the beach.

On the last day ev­ery­one en­joyed a visit to Sea Life in Ma­roochy­dore.

Stu­dent thoughts

CAMP was great. I went ice skat­ing and it was fun as I had never been be­fore. I en­joyed mak­ing the spears and huts. I also en­joyed fish­ing and ca­noe­ing.

Go­ing camp­ing with my friends was also great fun. — Tahya Shel­ton Year 4 I LOVED go­ing fish­ing, even though I didn’t catch any­thing.

I loved ice skat­ing, ex­cept when I fell over, and camp­ing was fun. — Joshua Fearby Year 5 I LIKED ice skat­ing and look­ing around South Bank, it was great fun swim­ming there.

I liked camp­ing un­til the last night when our tent blew over from the strong

winds and we had to sleep in the class­room.

— Kobi Mor­gan Year 5 I LIKED ice skat­ing and ca­noe­ing.

I liked be­ing able to hold a toad­fish and a baby croc­o­dile and walk­ing on the sand flats.

I also liked go­ing into Bris­bane as I had never been in there be­fore.

South Bank was an amaz­ing place to visit. — Iz­abella Lyt­ton- Hitchins Year 5

THE Prep to Year 2 stu­dents didn’t miss

out on the camp­ing ex­pe­ri­ence as they had an ex­cit­ing time at school with their very own day camp.

The stu­dents pitched tents in our en­vi­ron­men­tal area, made a camp fire, went hik­ing, made mud bricks and had a billy can- fill­ing re­lay race.

Stu­dent thoughts

WE SET up our tents, made a fake fire and went hik­ing to find dif­fer­ent di­rec­tions. It was fun. — Joanne Fearby Year 1

AF­TER we set up our tents, we made a pre­tend fire and made chairs us­ing logs. We played games and read sto­ries.

— Archie Lyt­ton- Hitchins Year 2 WE WENT on a scav­enger hunt to find blocks which told us which di­rec­tion to go next. We made a camp fire out of rocks and sticks. — Will Jukes Year 1 WE SET up our tents and it took a long time be­cause it was pretty hard. Our tent stayed up but one fell over. — Chase O’Rourke Year 1
