A World of Opportunity 

Lake Argyle | Year 10 - Group 2

I have been teaching Outdoor Education for over twenty year, and Lake Argyle is one of the most spectacular places that I have taken students to. The beauty, remoteness, and the grand scale make an unforgettable setting for an expedition. The Year 10 Outdoor Education class has been preparing for this major expedition all year, as the goal was for the students to be as self-sufficient as possible. Students were asked to plan and prepare all of their own food and equipment to safely complete a seven-day kayaking trip, during which we paddled over 60 km.

The route was planned by the class and submitted to the Head of Outdoor Education, Nick Wilkesmann, for approval. Students were put into groups and each group was responsible for leading a day. On their leadership day, the students set their own get-up time, paddling plan, and were responsible for facilitating all the important tasks that need to be completed when camping.

I was so proud of the class and the way in which they embraced the increased responsibility and freedom on this trip. Many fish were caught, places explored, and memories created.
