A presentation has already been given to the Year 6 parent body and the children. This is the highlight of the year for our Year 6 children. They spend five days kayaking, camping, completing team challenges, jumpy of jetty’s, hiking, building rafts and completing night challenges.
Number of teachers attending – an average of 5 for the week (plus instructors 1:6).

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CHILDREN WILL REQUIRE A SLEEPING BAG AS THEY ARE SLEEPING IN TENTS!
This camp has a number of challenging elements including the highest outdoor climbing wall in HK, a number of high rope challenges, lighting fires and cooking their own meal, camping, hikes and raft building.
More information will be sent out from the classroom teachers.
November 12-14 (Wednesday-Friday)
Who – Year 4
What – Cheung Chau Camp (Bradbury Camp)
Cost – $600 (we receive a government subsidy which dramatically reduces the cost)
This camp includes nature walks, beach time, night activities, sleeping in dorms, dinner at local restaurants and exploration of the Island.
Number of teachers attending – an average of 6 for the 3 days
Who – Year 3
What – Sailing at Heebee Haven Yacht Club and Beach Day

Number of teachers attending – an average of 5-6 for each day (plus sailing instructors 1:4)
This involves 2 day trips – one to Heebee Haven for a day of sailing and one to Big Wave Bay for a day at the beach which includes a range of activities such as treasure and nature hunts, fun games on the beach as well as a hike and a chance to get the feet wet. This will be the third year of these very successful and popular day trips.
