On Wednesday 5 April, the primary and secondary SRC members attended an excursion to Tree Tops Adventure Park. The students enjoyed an eventful day in which they were able to test their strength and face their fears in a friendly and exhilarating environment. The excursion was an opportunity for them to work together as a team and strengthen their friendships.
The day began with a bus ride to the location where students first enjoyed their recess together. After having their harnesses put on they were talked through the safety precautions that need to be taken while on the course. Students first attempted a practice course before venturing further onto the 4 different levels. Hadi and Omar in year 6 completed courses with speed and excitement setting an example for the rest. After a tiring 1.5 hours on the course students enjoyed their lunch in the nearby park.
Secondary school SRC students enjoyed enduring the challenging high ropes course which consisted of several elements including zip lines, rope climbing and obstacle circuits. The ropes course entailed three levels of difficulty including the green, blue and green circuits. Each level progressively became more challenging and harder, however the SRC peers remained persistent through assisting each other with words of encouragement to ensure they stayed determined in finishing each level. Some of senior students aged 16 years and over were daring enough to complete the Black course, which was the most challenging and hardest course on the circuit.
The SRC students effectively showed the core values of commitment, teamwork, persistence, determination and leadership skills. The primary and secondary SRC students must be commended on their outstanding behaviour and manners they displayed throughout the day. On behalf of the SRC coordinators and volunteers we greatly appreciate working alongside such diligent and well-mannered SRC students.
The day was a memorable one for all students and teachers!
