Stu­dents tackle Mt Buffalo

Myrtleford Times - - What’s On -

CHAL­LENGE: Mar­ian Col­lege student Damien Caponec­chia ab­seils dur­ing a camp at Mt Buffalo last month.

YEAR nine stu­dents from Mar­ian Col­lege re­cently spent three days at Mt Buffalo on a com­mu­nity camp partly or­gan­ised by them­selves.

The camp was based at the Lake Catani camp­ground and was de­signed to build a sense of com­mu­nity for stu­dents through group ac­tiv­i­ties that aimed to foster per­sonal growth through in­di­vid­ual achieve­ments, chal­lenges and ad­ver­si­ties.

Stu­dents also com­pleted Out­door Ed­u­ca­tion field­work based around Mt Buffalo.

Trained staff from Tim Shaw’s Bright Ad­ven­ture Com­pany con­ducted spe­cific ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing rock climb­ing, kayak­ing and ab­seil­ing.

Camp or­gan­iser Tony Cuskey said that stu­dents pre­pared well for the three-day trip.

“They were will­ing to at­tempt things out­side their com­fort zone and there­fore found the three day camp re­ward­ing and thor­oughly en­joyed their achieve­ments and suc­cesses,” he said.
