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 in Week 8 and Week 10 of Term 3.
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. The trip was a fantastic success, with everyone having a great time.
Some of the students chose to do a sunrise walk up a hill at their first camp site (pictured above). All of the students were involved in putting nest boxes up for the Gouldian Finch.
Both groups were challenged by extremely strong winds which meant tough paddling but the students worked well as a team and supported each other through all of the challenges. Both trips were enjoyed by everyone who participated.
Congratulations to all students and staff who were involved to make both journeys a big success.
