Outdoor Education at Lake Argyle

Outdoor Education at Lake Argyle

Two of Darwin High School's Stage 1 Outdoor Education classes travelled 482km to Lake Argyle for a four day paddling adventure at the end of Term 3 and start of Term 4.

Students had to navigate their way around the lake, following a route plan that they had created in class. They also had to carry all of their equipment for the trip in their canoes (some had to use a lot more man-power to paddle than others!!). The trip was a fantastic success, with everyone having a great time.

Despite looming threats of a big downpour for both trips, Mother Nature kindly kept the tents dry. The second group were challenged by extremely strong winds and this meant renavigating their designated camp spots and finding alternative locations. Both trips were enjoyed by everyone who participated.

Congratulations to all students and staff who were involved to make both journeys a big success.
