Years 7-10 Tin Can Bay School Leadership Camp

In Term 4, students in Years 7-10 who want to take on leadership opportunities in the future, were invited to attend the Tin Can Bay School Leadership Camp at Wappa Falls, Yandina.

Activities included the giant swing, Jacob’s ladder, mid ropes, abseiling and many more. We had great instructors who helped us through the best activities ever experienced.

The camp taught us many key points about being a terrific leader such as teamwork, cooperation and communication. The chefs gifted us with wonderful food and great service.

We were also involved in helping with breakfast, lunch and dinner. Overall, the camp was a great experience and we would take the opportunity to return.

The Army is in town!

Students were excited as Personnel from the Royal College of Duntroon, Canberra, Army infiltrated Tin Can Bay School to talk with students from Prep to Year 10. They discussed with students their roles, responsibilities, experiences and opportunities, so students could gain a better understanding of what they do and why.

Questions came thick and fast about what they are doing in Tin Can Bay at the moment, uniforms, vehicles, weapons, camouflaging, jobs, even the food they eat when on exercises! For more photos, have a look at the school Facebook page!

My trip to the State Trials

On the 15th and 16th of August, I was in Brisbane for the Queensland State Track and Field Trials as part of the Wide Bay school team. It was held at the Queensland Sports and Athletics Centre, a track where many well-known athletes have performed.

I competed in the 100m sprint, 200m sprint, long jump and the 400m circular relay. I ran my personal best times in my two sprints, with the times of 14.23sec in the 100m and 29.66sec in the 200m. I felt very proud while running in my events as not many people get to have the opportunity to do what I have done.

The highlight of my trip was definitely the circular relay, made up of four students from different schools in the Wide Bay region, as I have never competed in one before, so it was a new experience. I hope that I can go back to the State Trials next year and do even better.
