Year 8 Camp

As part of Activities Week at the end of Term 1, our Year 8 students headed to Waratah Bay for our stay at Waratah Beach Camp. Having had our planned camp cancelled last year, there was much excitement and everyone was delighted at the opportunity to be together as a year level.

Across the three days, the students participated in a variety of activities, including initiative games, a ropes course, a climbing/abseiling wall, a giant swing and beach games. One of the highlights was the disco on the last night, where everyone donned their fluro outfits and their glow sticks on the dance floor, including the Siena staff.

We were very lucky to have beautiful weather for the duration of our stay, and we were able to conclude our camp on the Thursday morning by spending some time at the beach together; playing games, walking on the beach and celebrating the end of a busy term.

Thank you to all the Year 8 students for making camp so successful, and to the camp staff and Siena teachers for their support in running the activities. It was a fantastic end to Term 1.

Student reflections

On 30 March the Year 8s headed off to Waratah Bay to begin our camp journey. We had the chance to participate in many initiatives and social activities whilst at camp, my favourite activity was the rock climbing and finishing the first night with a beach walk and a campfire. We also got to take part in a range of beach activities to create new friendships. Overall the experience was great, I made new friends and created memories that I will cherish forever.

Year 8 Camp was at Waratah Beach Camp and it had some amazing activities. One of my favourite activities was the Giant Swing, from the top we could see all around the camp, it felt as if we were on top of the world. We also had a chance to go to the beach to play games and spend time bonding with other girls in our year level. It was a great chance for us to make new friends in our year after not having a lot of time together last year and I am so happy we were able to go.
