Our senior Yirrkala Stars spent three days at a residential camp designed to get students away from distractions at home and school, support them to finalise any outstanding assignments and nurture their wellbeing.
The camp for Years 10 to 12 was organised by senior school staff at Yirrkala Bilingual School and supported by our Yirrkala Stars Mentors.
Every morning the students worked on their assignments then, after lunch, spent the afternoon taking part in wellbeing activities, including fishing, hunting, swimming, collecting pandanus leaves, telling stories and cooking up a feed over the camp fire.
The camp not only supported students to complete their work, it also helped to build stronger relationships between Stars Mentors, school staff and students.
It was such a success that more camps are being planned for Terms 3 and 4.
