ACG Strathallan College Students
This week our Year 10 students have been away at their school camp at Kokako Lodge in Hunua. They've been busy taking part in a heap of fun and exciting activities such as high ropes, raft-building, low ropes, archery, abseiling and a 3-4 hour tramp!
ACG Strathallan entered 14 students into the Australian Mathematics Competition this year. Hundreds of thousands of students in primary and secondary schools from around 30 countries sat the AMC on 28 July.
Eleven students from Years 10 and 11 completed their final qualifying tramp for the Adventurous Journey section of our Bronze Award this term. It was a challenging weekend with a wet Saturday and very muddy tracks but that didn’t deter our spirits and we all rose to the challenge. The Adventurous Journey is opportunity to work as a team and develop leadership skills. The goal is to develop navigational and campcraft skills as well as pushing us physically as we have to carry our packs up some challenging tracks. The sense of satisfaction as we reached our final destination was huge and there was a great feeling of relief.
Angus, Batten, McLaren and Wilkins joined together for the annual House picnic this afternoon before competing against each other in a range of activities, from catapulting to orienteering. Competition was fierce but friendly and the sunny weather made for a fun day for all.
