Year 8 students spent three days at Cape Bridgewater where they had the opportunity to experience a range of outdoor activities. These included walking a section of the Great South West Walk which allowed all to see the spectacular coast and the petrified forest. At the Seals by Sea tour, students had a ride on a motorboat to observe seals at the only mainland breeding colony of the Australian and New Zealand fur seals. From the boat they also saw evidence of volcanic activity and a close up of the caves there. The boat took students to a snorkeling point where they were able to swim with the seal pups and spot fish. The weather was perfect for surfing, a first experience for many students. Caving challenged students as they climbed through tunnels and observed cave structures. The talent night was a success and entertaining for all. On the way back sand-boarding was great exercise and thoroughly enjoyed despite the weather.
