Middle School Report – March 9, 2017

March 9, 2017

This week has seen the first two of our four Year 9 camps completed. We have been blessed with excellent weather and perfect conditions for each of our activities. Each camp has started with a very clear journey, of some challenge, as the boys made their initial entrance to the camp. This all forms a basis for our work undertaking “The Rite Journey Program.” The boys have developed stronger teamwork as they have, in many cases, needed to support each other as they undertook activities they found challenging and out of their comfort zone. Staff have been heavily involved in every activity and right beside the boys as we continue to establish strong relationships and be part of your sons’ journey through the Middle School. Early morning exercise groups, snorkelling, biking, canoe challenges and surfing have been the organised activities but the incidental conversations between boys and staff are equally priceless. Father Anthony has also been able to join us and share Mass together in this most picturesque – surrounding which has also been a highlight. Understandably everyone will have had a fantastic time but they will return home considerably tired yet all the better prepared for the next stages of our young men’s journey. I must thank the Middle School Team, the Camp Wyuna staff and most importantly the boys themselves who have behaved themselves impeccably, following all instructions and giving nothing short of their best every day.
