In Term 1, the Senior Sport and Recreational classes participated in our Rock Climbing practical unit. This involved our classes travelling off campus weekly to ‘Rock It’ climbing gym located at Kawana where they were taught, coached and challenged in their rock climbing abilities.
During Week 7, all three classes went on a full day rock climbing and abseiling excursion at Mt Ngun Ngun as a culmination of their practical assessment for the term. It was an awesome opportunity for students to transfer their knowledge and skills that they had learnt in the 6 weeks prior into an authentic and unpredictable real life recreational setting. The students were challenged in their problem solving skills, their communication skills and their practical rock climbing skills. We hope the students know how blessed and fortunate they are to have incredible opportunities like this at GCC.
