The Sheep Farm overnight camping was very successful. They kids and teachers had a blast. The day started with team building activities, where both kids and teachers had to work together to follow instructions to finish the tasks first. In the process kids learnt to listen, to follow, and to contribute their own ideas.As they performed all the activities and took turns in cheering each other up, camaraderie was built, friendships were strengthened, and knowing how to react and interact with each others uniqueness were learnt.
Then…. lunch time. Everybody ate and shared halal food.
In the afternoon, they visited the farm and fed the sheep. It is amazing to note that the kids were not scared feeding them. They even enjoyed every bit of it. They did not mind the wet soil and the weather as they came prepared with boots, rain coats, sunblock, and mosquito lotion. Then, they had nature walk appreciating the scenery around. The bigger kids even engaged in some survival activities, who later on boasted about their accomplishments. They went on the bouncy castle, which they enjoyed tremendously. They, then, had a tour around the area on a tram.
Year 2 to 7 students stayed for the night. They stayed in the farm’s very nice accommodation with the teachers. They built a bonfire and had exciting activities. Photos and videos will be uploaded soon.
It was definitely a great way to end the first half of the term!
