Year 12 Outdoor Education Deep Creek Camp
On the 11th to 13th of May 2022, the Year 12 Outdoor Ed - Group A class ventured to Deep Creek Conservation Park for their 3 day bushwalk with staff members Kathryn Reedy, Blake Tabe and Kieran Wandel. Students were given the opportunity to showcase their navigation skills and outdoor living skills they had learnt during the semester. A few highlights of the trip included walking down to Deep Creek Cove, seeing the new camping huts and accommodation area at Eagle Waterhole campground, seeing the waterfall and views of Kangaroo Island from the Tapanappa Lookout. During the trip students conducted micro-tutorials about environmental issues they had researched back at school which was very interesting.
Over the 3 days the group walked 23km over very hilly and physically demanding terrain. We were able to connect with a different environment, learn about different rocks, plants and animals and connect with each other without the distraction of modern technology and social media. It was awesome to see the group working closely together and supporting each other. Students represented the school with pride, showed great determination and teamwork for the entirety of the trip. Well done team. Really looking forward to our Self-reliant bushwalk to Mambray Creek in Week 9 on Wednesday to Friday.
