YEAR 7 CAMP 2017

In the last week of school seventy year 7 students and their pastoral care teachers journeyed to Kakadu National Park for three days of sightseeing activities to learn about savanna ecosystems and indigenous art & history.

The Jabiru Area School provided a wonderful location for the 2017 Year 7 camp base.

The students visited Bowali Information Centre, Nourlangie Rock where they participated in a guided ranger tour through the landscape and art galleries.  On the final morning the students visited the awesome Ubirr Rock.

Our students were wonderful ambassadors for Taminmin College and displayed great manners and respect for others. Several teachers at our host school commented on the excellent listening and behaviour shown by our students, and how friendly and polite they were.

Taminmin teachers were impressed by the willingness of most students to lend a hand, take responsibility and help out. A combined barbecue with outdoors viewing of State of Origin on the lawns on Wednesday Night capped off a great stay and cemented strong class bonds.

A big thank-you must go out to the PC teachers on the camp. It has been particularly hard over the last few weeks with report writing on top of teaching and the PC teachers gave 100% over and above this to make the camp a wonderful success.  Thank-you also to the teachers who ran a quality program for those students unable to attend camp, and the many staff who contributed to the organising of the camp, behind the scenes.
