Outdoor Education and Environmental Studies Camp to Wilsons Promontory
Last week, the Year 9 Outdoor and Environmental Studies students ventured to the Wilsons Promontory National Park for a three-day bushwalk.
They were blessed with all forms of Victorian weather, and the students experienced the sense of achievement that comes from carrying heavy packs for 39km to witness some spectacular sights, along with managing the challenges of self-sufficient camping. When reflecting on the trip it was encouraging to hear our young people speak about their awe of, and wonder at, God's creation, the unique privilege to be disconnected from the modern world, and the sense of independence and maturity they feel when living in a self-sufficient manner.
This time in the outdoors also allowed students to reflect on the gratitude they feel for the opportunities they have, the unexpected friendships they formed, and to develop a greater understanding of the unique natural environment that we have in our country.
