A fantastic time at Year 11 Camp!

During week 2 this term, our Year 11 Students travelled to South Stradbroke island for a three day camp focused around the completion of the Group 4 Project, which is integrated with the annual QAHS House competition. The camp aims to provide an opportunity for Science students to use their creativity and skills to collaboratively and practically solve problems with an interdisciplinary mind set. The focus is upon fun, participation and real science, while gaining a greater appreciation for a beautiful natural environment on our back door. Students also practice independence and self-sufficiency by supplying their own shelter and food throughout the camp. They develop stronger social bonds with their peers through co-operation and teamwork, which help to build resilience in the group.

The students were blessed this year with some of the most magnificent conditions we have experienced at camp to date. The students collaborated well in their groups and competed for bragging rights in the house competition. This year, Terra was the grand winner of the “Survivor” House Competition. Congratulations and thanks to all Year 11 students who participated in the true spirit of the event and exhibited the traits of the “IB Learner” throughout the camp.
