Year 12 Students Unite

Year 12 Students Unite

Yr_12_Camp (2).jpgYear 12 students at Suncoast Christian College went away to their school camp as classmates; but after pulling a truck 600m, carrying a stretchered classmate through muddy waters and spending an evening together as ladies and gentlemen, they returned as a unified group of friends with a better understanding of each other.
 
The Year 12’s annual journey to spend 4 days at the Emu Gully Adventure Camp has become a Suncoast tradition that brings the whole class together and prepares them for the challenges in their final year of schooling.
 
Emu Gully Adventure camps are known for pushing people to their limit and creating scenarios that force individuals to work together thus increasing team performance.
 
Students where split into three groups for the duration of the camp, facing challenges as a team and learning how to work together, taking into considerations everyone’s strengths and weaknesses.
 
The truck pull challenge was particularly difficult with each group having to pull a large army truck 600m while the other teams cheered them on.  This seemingly impossible task became achievable when everyone put in 100% and fully committed to the challenge.  As each group slowly dragged the truck along the dusty road, their exhaustion was clear, but so was the realisation that, “when we work together, anything is possible.”
 
The second last evening of camp was spent learning how to be ladies and gentlemen in a formal dinner setting.  The boys and girls were paired up for an evening of etiquette and dancing.  The highlight was definitely the Year 12 boys singing a version of One Directions “What Makes You Beautiful” to the thrilled Year 12 girls.
