City Sport and Outdoor Education

Seven students participated in this expedition which was run on the lower sections of the Clarence River in northern New South Wales.  This was the first remote area style outdoor education experience that the school has run.  The group of students were responsible for all aspects of planning, developing and program flow.  This included menu development, gaining permission to camp on private land, shopping for food and navigation.  Whilst the river was quite low, the river still provided the group with many challenges.  The hi-light of the program was canoeing and swimming the Clarence Gorge section.  The group worked well as a team and learnt many new skills.  We were very grateful for the assistance from Steve and Sharon Ross owners of the Clarence River Wilderness Lodge where we based ourselves for the first and last nights.  In 2020 further remote expeditions are planned with hiking, mountain biking and white canoeing programs planned for students in years Eight – Twelve in each of the holidays. Sport Oztag is well and truly up and running.  Miss Goodwin has organised eight teams to compete in the Caloundra Oztag competition.  Games are played on either Monday or Wednesday afternoons and nights.  All teams are very competitive, and the student’s skills are developing as the weeks go by.  Thank you to the parents who come along as spectators and especially to those who have taken on roles as Team Managers. Friday Sport commence this Friday afternoon.  The focus for this term is skill acquisition and training for SCISSA Term One 2020 sports – Netball and Volleyball.  As well Oztag/Touch Football and General Ball Skill electives will be run.  All sports this term are based at the school. Go gently everyone. Peter McMahon – Head of Sport and Outdoor Education
