Year 9 Camp - Flinders Ranges (Issue 9 2017)
Written on the 22 June 2017
On Tuesday 6 June, all Year 9 students set off on camp to the beautiful and scenic Bendleby Ranges in the Flinders Ranges. The aim of this experience was for the boys to step out of their comfort zones and reflect on what it means to be fine young men.
Some of the highlights included day walks around the breathtaking hills and mountains, mountain biking on the tough rocky terrain, as well as having time for some solitude in the great outdoors. At night time, a warm fire offered tremendous relief for our boys as the overnight temperatures dropped as low as -3 degrees.
Overall, the camp taught many of the boys a few lessons. These included not taking what we have at home for granted and that an environment where everybody is working well with each other makes things a lot easier. Seven boys (one from each class) were awarded with a 'Man of the Camp' award. Congratulations to Anthony Bosnakis, Fletcher Luscombe, Conner Critchard-Bligh, Jack Dwyer, Peter Paech, Eric Reddy and Jarrod Blundell.
