Surf, Sun, and Success: Year 12’s Gold Coast Adventure Sets the Stage for an Epic Year Ahead!

Picture this: Year 12 – the pinnacle of high school life. But before diving headfirst into a whirlwind of exams, assignments, and the dreaded teachers’ glares, there’s one epic escapade awaiting: a Gold Coast getaway!

Imagine waking up to the sun-kissed shores (when it wasn’t raining) of the Gold Coast, where the cool breeze whispers a promise of adventure. For three exhilarating days, the Year 12 crew called the Burleigh CYC home, nestled right along the tranquil Tallebudgera Creek.

From dawn til dusk, they rode the waves, mastering the art of surfing and conquering the speedy inflatable water tubes. And when the stars lit up the night sky, they embarked on clandestine missions to Maccas, strolling along the moonlit Burleigh beach.

But the thrills didn’t stop there! With hearts pounding and laughter echoing, they tackled the ultimate challenge: a day at Movie World, where fantasy meets reality in a whirlwind of rides and excitement.

Yet amidst the adrenaline-fueled adventures, something remarkable emerged. The Year 12 squad showcased not just their courage and spirit but also their incredible camaraderie and respect. Their exemplary behaviour filled the teachers’ hearts with pride and was a credit to our school community.

As the sun set on their Gold Coast escapade, a sense of anticipation filled the air. With memories made and bonds strengthened, the Year 12 cohort stood ready to take on the challenges of their final year, fuelled by the unforgettable experiences of their epic journey.
