Surfs Up In Lancelin

The 6.2C class have just arrived back from three wonderful days spent with the Outdoor Education team in Lancelin. During their stay students built on their understanding of beach safety and surf awareness whilst developing their confidence in a marine environment.

Some of the highlights included taking part in surfing lessons each day at Back Beach, working as a cohesive team in 'The Amazing Race", catching a variety of fish off the Lancelin Jetty and camping out each night in tents. All boys thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to develop their practical skills and be challenged in a dynamic learning environment.

Throughout their stay the boys also gained a real insight into the history surrounding Lancelin and the characteristics of the area and the surrounding ecosystems. The boys even spotted a dolphin or two. It was a fun filled, action packed few days, which would not have been possible without the expertise and guidance of Mr Steele, Miss Bacon and Mr Templar.

The 6.2C boys are now eagerly looking forward to more Outdoor Education experiences in Year 7 and beyond!
