Camp Reflection

The camp took place at borland lodge all the year sixes went because eairlier on this year they were fundriasing by having a market day which is where the year sixes run stands and sell cheap food or other things at the end it all goes towards the're camp.

It was a great camp with only the year sixes it was nice to spend time with people from another class
I think that everyone supoted each other and helped each other out and made it the best camp that it could be!!

The worst thing about camp was getting woken up earlie and then being tired for doing the activities but when white water rafting getting in the water defintally woke me up!!

The rafting was one of the funnest things that I did because it woke me up. The tyrolean course was fun we one of our parents bribed us to dunk Mr Herring in the water.
Rock climbing was fun because you got to anchor yourself up and down. Abseiling was awesome When I went first it was fun it seemed really high but it was over before I knew it.

Next time I will try and get to sleep earlier so I wouldn't be as tired.
Next years campers should bring a good attitude and lots of fly spray!!! Participate and have fun!

Reflective Post

Yesterday at enrich I learnt how to print my lino print. A lino print is where you chisel out a picture I chiseled out a dragon breathing because our focus is dragons.

I printed it so it could go in the art gallery.
Now I am going to make another lino print.
