The Years 13 and 7 Peer Support Day at Dolamore Park
The Years 13 and 7 peer support day was full of lots of different, unique, and fun activities that all of the Year 7’s will never forget.
One of the activities was based on army training and we went in the bush, ran and played “Simon Says” in the creek. Before we did the running, we had to put stripes of mud on our face like how hunters put green face paint on before they hunt. We ran about a quarter of the way through the bush and then sprinted back to the park to then go into the creek.
In another activity we put on blindfolds and walked through the creek to go and feel different items. The items were porridge, mossy grass and a yabby with water and stones. While getting there we had to walk through the creek, duck under branches and climb slopes.
During the Scavenger Hunt we were trying to find clues and were lead on a giant goose chase all around Dolamore Park.
The Year 13’s split us up into boys vs girls to have dance off. We spent about half an hour practicing for the big show, to everyone's surprise the boys in 7JB won.
One of our favourite activities was the giant water slide. We enjoyed the fast pace and the way we could all go down together.
We ended the day with a Tug of War. All the different classes were fighting over possession of the rope and 7KP came out the victors. The last pull was against the Year 13’s vs the Year 7’s and surprisingly the juniors won. It may have been because of the numbers, but a win is a win.
We would like to thank the Year 13’s for pulling off this special day with just two days of preparation. It was truly awesome. We wish them well in their future and their future careers.
