8.2R Moray Experience

The boys of 8.2R, together with 8.1T met on Monday of Week 3A at Scotch ready for an exciting week at Moray. The group was greeted with beautiful sunshine on arrival and for 4 days the boys engaged in fun yet reasonably challenging outdoor experiences. Boys took part in activities such as: hiking to Swamp Oaks and Baden Powell Camp sites, climbing the high ropes course, canoeing the notorious "Killerfang Falls", camping, and cooking gourmet pizzas and burritos for themselves to name a few.

As expected, the mornings were cold but this did not hinder the enthusiasm from the boys. Upon reflection the boys gave an excellent account of themselves on camp, and I was pleased to witness a number of 8.2R boys who displayed actions of integrity, service and stewardship in all of their actions.

As always, the planning behind the scenes was fantastic and I thank the Scotch College Outdoor Education team and the external staff for making the 2017 camp such a success. I hope that the boys can reflect positively on this outdoor experience and put to use some of the skills that they have learned.
