    October, 2016

    During Week 4 this term, the Year 6 students travelled to Perth for their Graduation Camp. This had been a much-anticipated event all year and it did not disappoint! Whilst in Perth we camped out in the library of our host school St. Columba's. During our week, there we got to join St. Columba's for All Saints Day Mass, an amazing race with the year 6 students and outdoor play in the ECE yard. Our students got a tour of Parliament house which concluded with lunch in the members only restaurant. A very fancy, fine dining experience particularly enjoyed by the teachers. The students loved the view from Kings Park and seeing a piece of the Kimberley (the Boab tree) in the heart of Perth. Unfortunately, it was just a little too cold to go swimming at Cottlesloe beach but that didn't stop us from having lots of fun people watching and tucking in on fish and chips for dinner. Bounce was popular with all and was followed by some shopping. We got to see everyone's favourite animals at the zoo and there were lots of great photo opportunities. After learning about graffiti at school the kids enjoyed finding examples of it throughout the city and discussing the artistic merits of each example. There were many complaints of why we had to leave Perth at all and lots wished they could stay forever. This was taken as an indication of a very successful camp! Thanks to all those who contributed to an amazing week for our students.
