Braydon’s Camp Poem

Have you ever experienced school camp?
Of course you have.
Remember that time when everybody else was scarcely snoring, but you were the only person awake in your room, gazing up into the pitch black?
And you were hot and tired, but still struggling to fall asleep.
Remember how you were tossing and turning, trying to get into a comfortable position, eager to get a good night sleep?
That was school camp.
Remember that time when you were in for spotlight, running through out the dark atmosphere, gripping the flashlight firmly in the palm of your hand?
And you kept finding people.
And you were sweating because you were too hot.
However you still kept your jacket on.
Remember how everybody else was really good at hiding?
That was school camp.
Remember that time when you were eyeing up the small target, aiming your air rifle in the precise position?
And you slightly squeezed the trigger?
And you heard an ear piercing sound, KA BOOM! The sound rings across your ear drums.
And you vividly see the small target collapse to the ground, you start to feel a sense of achievement.
You walked out, eager to give another challenge a go.
Remember how the archery was almost impossible to hit the target, no matter how hard you tried?
That was school camp.
If you try hard enough, you can remember the smiles on the ecstatic kids faces brightening up, as if they were having the time of their lives.
And you were also having so much fun.
And you were playing with the rugby ball. You booted the ball up so high, but it was still easy to catch.
Do you remember feeling the rush of adrenaline as you peddled through the forest, over the rugger end dirt jumps and Down the slipper slopes.
That was school camp.

Student Lead P.E Sessions

Today we started our second round of student lead P.E sessions. The two focus groups are exploring hockey and rugby and will take part in four lessons.
We have quickly realised that it is tricky stepping into a leadership/ coaching role and being in charge of a group. As learners we have to put ourselves in the shoes of the coaches and treat them the way we would like to be treated – with respect and courtesy.
The coaches did a great job for their first time and we look forward to the next session!

That Was School Camp

2015 camp

Have you ever endured school camp?
Sure you have
Remember that time when you were really tried yet you couldn’t get to sleep
And in the mornings?
That was school camp

Remember that time when you were swinging
really high and almost fell off and
just caught your balance.
And how you were to scared to swung higher.
Remember how everyone swung high too.
That was school camp.

Remember that time when you were hiding for spot light and
How you never got found and
You almost felt like you would never be found. And how it was freezing.
Remember when you couldn’t stop laughing especially when you sore the light
That was school camp!

That Was School Camp

Have you experienced a school camp?
Sure you have!
Remember that time
When you were tried of lingering up late
Or when you were tried of your roomates waking you up early
Remember that time
When you were boiling hot
And then when you were cold because the air conditioning was on
Remember the hot nights?
Then the cold mornings?
That was school camp!

Remember that time
You were hiding in the bushes
Trying not to get found
Then you see the bright flashlight shine on your feet
Then you think
‘Hide my face!!!!
Hide!!!’
Then they say;
“Found you, Hayley!”
That was school camp

Remember that time
When you were too scared to do…
AIR RIFFLES!!
And everyone says “come on, do it!”
Finally after 5 minutes, you give in
So you line up the bullseye
But when you pull the trigger, and you miss by FAR
You change guns because you think that that gun was crused
And you try again
Without even trying, you hit the bullseye
That was school camp

Remember that time
When you set your bed for night time
When it’s finally time to climb into bed
You feel the new fuzzy and warm bed sheets
You take a great, big inhale of the sheets
And it smells like your Grandma and Grandad’s house!
You puff up your pillow to feel at home
And rissle around in our sleeping bag
That was school camp!!

And you kept finding people.

And you were sweating because you were to hot.

However you still kept your jacket on.

Remember how everybody was really good at hiding?

That was school camp.

And you slightly squeezed the trigger.

And you heard an ear piercing sound, KA BOOM! The sound rings across your ear drums.

And you vividly see the small target collapse to the ground, you start to feel a sense of achievement.

Finally, you struck the target! You walked out, eager to give another challenge a go.

Remember how the Achery was almost impossible to hit the target, no matter how hard you tried.

That was school camp.

If you try hard enough, you can remember the smiles on the ecstatic kids faces brightening up as if they were having the time of their lives. And you were also having so much fun.

That Was Camp For Me

Have you ever experienced camp?
Sure you have
Remember that time when you tripped over a tyre in spot light
And when you hide underneath the bbq and got told to be quite but we still got found
And when you were a tater and got a lot of people in the bushes
And when we stayed up till 11.00 pm
Sure you have
And when you fell off the swings and was hanging on for deer life
Sure you have
And when you walked through a forest and fell on the wet soil

Do you remember
when you climbed a tree and took approximately 2 minutes
To get down
And when you sprinted to the mysterious flax bushes as the hunters go past and scream my name
And when you watched the bright torches go past
And when you listened to the rain tumbling down on the tin can roof
And that time when you shot a paint can down with a air rifle
And when you were running around like hooligans trying to scare people
Sure you have

Do you remember
When you eat boiling hot nachos with rice corn and others yum things
And for dessert you had ice cream and jelly
And packed our lunch bun muffin and apples
We also went to blue lake
And ran /walked it was so crystal clear
And you played in the sand
And when you found two ducks and feed them food
Sure you have

Do you remember when you
Did a flip and failed it
And when you couldn’t Get to the other side on the monkey bars
And when you clend your room spotless
And when you made a tower of tyers and jumped on it
And when you were playing tag and was run for deer life
And when you were being lazy and laying on the bed
And when you shot a arrow 5 times on the target and screamed yes
That was camp for me
