Study Hard, Play Hard – Year 11 Camp

Our Year 11 students headed down to Gerringong during camp week and spent some time each morning learning and reinforcing study techniques to help establish good habits for their upcoming HSC.   We invited Elevate Team to come and speak to and inspire our students.  Elevate is a group of high achieving HSC students who run workshops to help students improve their study techniques, increase motivation, build confidence, and lift exam performance.

But it certainly wasn’t all study time, there was plenty of time to play!

The afternoons were filled with beach visits, hiking and plenty of laughter. Basketball, and table tennis and shopping gave students the opportunity to pause and catch their breath after a busy start to the year.

At night, the students (and staff) let down their hair in ‘Cedars Has Talent’ with our very own Mr Carter as the host of the evening.  The Dance Night was also a big hit!

Students had a great time and are applauded for their mature and responsible attitudes and behaviour. Serving others, stepping beyond their comfort zones to make people feel included and seeking opportunities to add value to those around them made it a great camp.

Enjoy feedback from some of our students:

My favourite memory from camp was:

“Laughter with friends, study sessions and the food.”

“Spending time with my friends.” 

“The walks and the costume party was very epic!” 

“Dance night!”
