TY @ Cappanalea

The Transition Year class recently began to wrap up their school year with a trip to Cappanalea Outdoor Education Centre. While there they camped out overnight and took part in a number of activities. The students spent most their time on the water, learning how to build rafts, kayaking, windsurfing, and stand up paddling, and in case this wasn’t enough some orienteering to stretch the legs. Despite the the best efforts of the ghost stories around the campfire everyone made it home safe and well!!!
