ROCK N RIVER

Year 12 spent an enjoyable day at Rock and River last Thursday. They took part in a number of activities including a high ropes course, canoeing and climbing. The day was organised as part of the induction program intended to break the ice and help student build confidence.

Below is a photograph of the extra large moth discovered on the banks of the lake which caught everyone’s attention.
