Among the many opportunities to make up for missed Outdoor Education from throughout this unpredictable year was the Year 8 Rural Experience. These images show a snapshot of the educational and exciting activities our students took part in.

The students could choose from a number of different experiences, one of which was the Gippsland adventure! We visited Gippstown on our first day, which is a historic reconstruction of a Gold Rush era town. The highlight was learning about shopping, education and entertainment during this time.

We then visited Walhalla, where we all loved the beautiful train ride and the fascinating tour deep in the mine. The students got to ask lots of questions and learnt about mining conditions and processes and the fortunes that were made and lost at Walhalla. The trip was completed with a walk around Walhalla and a stop at the vintage lolly shop.

We also visited a lake just outside of Traralgon to complete some community service and stopped for lunch and a spot of art and reflection.

The penultimate day was an action-packed visit to Mount Baw Baw where the students got to take some dingos for a walk. They also went for a challenging walk up and around Mount Baw Baw and had time for mountainside laser tag.

It was such a great experience and we’re so glad we were able to take the students out to learn, connect and have some fun.
