Top camp for all

Coolum State School’s Year Seven class left for Tallebudgera Beach School for their five-day camp on Monday, April 27. We all had to be at school by 6.30pm.

The parents were sad to see all of us go on a camp for so long. We had all boarded the bus by 7pm sharp and were ready for a long trip to the Gold Coast.

When we arrived at Tallebudgera Beach we were excited to find out what we were doing for the week.

The activities we enjoyed included sailing, raft building, hand line fishing, tandem bikes, surf awareness, body boarding, pool activities and the best was tobogganing.

The food was tasty and the cabins we slept in were spacious and comfortable.

Every night we had some fantastic activities such as games, dancing, and a movie night. But the best of all was the science show put on by a teacher called Randall who had a fascination for science. He used liquid nitrogen to freeze fruit and vegetables, bouncy balls and balloons along with other cool items. He blew up a helium balloon and the whole ground shook.

Finally it was time to go home. We arrived back at school at 4.30pm. Year Seven had a fabulous time at camp.
