Dunlop Orientation Camp
The Dunlop Year 7 students had an awesome time on their Orientation Camp at YMCA in Anglesea.
Students completed a wide range of activities focusing on the students building their confidence, leadership and team building skills. This allowed students to establish relationships with their peers and teachers.
Some of the highlights include surfing, giant swing and raft building.
I would like to thank the Year 10 Leaders for their assistance and organisation of the camp. I would also like acknowledge the teachers for volunteering their time on the camp and making it a huge success.
