The grades 4-7 boys headed out to Table Farm for their annual camp out last Friday. Once the tents were pitched and lunch eaten, the boys played reed wars, went for walks and enjoyed being outside in the clean, fresh air. Fireside stories late into the night, roasted marshmallows and probably very little sleep marked off another great camp-out and many memories made!
On Saturday morning, the boys were up bright and early to run/walk the 13.5km back to Fairlawn.
Table Farm Trek has a wonderful history at Prep and forms part of our commitment to offering the boys and girls exposure to things outside of school. A commitment we believe in implicitly. Not only does Outdoor Ed offer the children the opportunity to be alone and away from the distractions of the connected world, it also creates space for them to take risks they normally wouldn’t (or the caring adults in their lives wouldn’t let them take) and to figure out things for themselves and between themselves without adult interference or, as we would prefer to call it, direction.
