Some of our Year 8 Palmerston College Stars were taken on an overnight camp to Litchfield National Park recently in recognition of their commitment to attending school each day, with one student increasing her attendance by almost 15 per cent last Term!
During the camp, our Palmerston students were lucky enough to drop into the Taminmin College Stars program, where they enjoyed meeting and getting to know a whole new group of Stars.
This was followed by a visit to the Batchelor Butterfly Farm, where the girls not only got to see and learn all about butterflies, but also hand-fed some ducks, geese, goats, rabbits – and even a donkey.
On day two, the girls were taken on a tour of Batchelor Institute and heard about what study and training opportunities it offers and how it supports Indigenous students from all over Australia.
This was a great way to celebrate their achievements and encourage them to maintain good attendance into the future.
