Student bonding and adventure – Year 12 retreat to Yanchep National Park

The Year 12 cohort set off for an overnight retreat to Yanchep National Park. Despite the heat, we were all excited to spend the days doing activities and building even stronger bonds with our peers as we started our final year of school.

We began the afternoon with some team-building games, facilitated by firefighter Jordie from Armed For Life, where we worked together in teams to compete in different challenges. After the girls won the tug of war, we hit the beach for a few hours to enjoy a cooling swim.

In the evening, we heard from our SJAS Alumni before finishing the day off with a quiz night. Each team won points by dressing in our team colours, answering questions and impressing the group with our singing voices and dance moves.

The next day, we headed to Optus Stadium Park to take part in a Rapid Teams amazing race. In our teams, we completed different challenges, exploring the area along the river before having a well-earned break on the bank to hear the results of the challenge.

The retreat was an amazing experience for us all to bond, share stories and make the first of many memories for our final year of school. We all enjoyed spending quality time together to begin our Year 12 journey.
