Booklists for 2018 and Student Resource Scheme

 
 


School Robotics Team. 

 
We have entered into a worldwide robotics tournament (called FIRST LEGO League), which involves completing a series of challenges related to the theme of water - how we find, transport, use, or dispose of it.  
 
FIRST® LEGO® League is a competition catering for upper-primary and lower-secondary school students. Every year, teams of up to 10 students build, program and compete with a robot, while also learning about a modern problem in science and engineering and developing solutions for it. The entire competition for the year is based around water. Tournaments are run with the feel of a sporting event, and teams compete like crazy while having the time of their lives. What FIRST® LEGO® League teams accomplish is nothing short of amazing. It’s fun. It’s exciting. And the skills they learn will last a lifetime.
 
The tournament is being hosted at Good Shepherd Lutheran College on Saturday 10 November. 
 
A schedule for the day is attached below:
 
Transport: Parents to provide their own
Lunch: Bring your own or Canteen Menu to follow
Time: 8.30 a.m. – 4.00 p.m. (approximately)

Below is a comprehensive outline of the activities your child will participate in whilst on camp, some of which are identified as high risk:

INDOOR ROCK CLIMBING  (Risk Level: High)
The indoor rock climbing wall is a simulated natural rock surface with a series of large and small artificial climbing holds. There are nine climb lines ranging in height from eight to fifteen metres. Encompassing sixty individual climbs, the wall has a range of climbs from beginner to advance. Goals are examined and encouraged throughout the session with the emphasis on team support, encouragement and safety. 
 
GIANT SWING (Risk Level: High)
Participants will be able to test and push their individual comfort zones while on this activity. Challenge by choice is a big concept for this activity. The whole team pulls the ‘Swinger’ up as far up as they choose (up to 20 metres!). When they are ready, the ‘Swinger’ lets go to experience a thrilling swing that will leave their heart racing!
 
HIGH ROPES (Risk Level: High)
High level ropes courses are the next step up and offer opportunities to explore personal limits, goal setting and decision making. Participants reach for new heights and test courage while also building self-esteem. As with the low and medium ropes courses, group and individual safety is paramount and will be covered along with technique by the instructor. The course is a physical and mental challenge for those individuals and teams wanting to find that special something that gives them the edge.
 
MEDIUM ROPES (Risk Level: High)
The medium ropes course is usually a precursor to the High Ropes Course and is positioned 6 metres off the ground. During this activity participants reach for new heights and test courage while also building self-esteem. As with the low and high ropes courses, group and individual safety is paramount and will be covered along with technique by the instructor. The course is a physical and mental challenge for those individuals and teams who may be exploring roping activities for the first time.
 
PAMPER POLE (Risk Level: High)
Pupils muster all their confidence and courage to climb to the top of a 10-meter pole and gain faith to leap out to touch a suspended ball. Pamper Pole is a great activity for our challenge by choice ethos and students are gently encouraged and supported by qualified instructors to push their own boundaries as far as they wish. This may be only a few steps up the pole, half way or all the way to the top and leap. Students are congratulated according to their individual achievements and supported by the whole group.
 
OBSTACLE COURSE  (Risk Level: Medium)
Following a series of challenging obstacles, students as an individual or as a team must navigate through the course whilst running, climbing, jumping, crawling and balancing with the aim of testing patience and endurance. Watch as the students push themselves physically and mentally, whilst also being able to work in a team to make it through the course as one. Expect to see the participants get into character when you see them climbing, crawling and rolling their way through this course with the assistance of their team mates providing encouragement and support.
 
RAFT BUILDING (Risk Level: High)
Everyone will find raft building a challenging and unique experience as participants learn to work together to achieve a common goal. The real adventure begins when participants climb aboard their creation and paddle the raft to a desired destination to determine the raft’s seaworthiness. Bring clothes and shoes that you don’t mind
 
STAND UP PADDLE BOARDING  (Risk Level: Medium)
Stand up paddle boarding has been around for approximately seven years in Australia and has been the fastest growing surf sport in the country. Total Adventures has conducted a number of sessions with schools in the lake adjoining our Noosa North Shore Property. A soft user friendly board with an adjustable paddle and leg rope. The students will learn a variety of skills and safe water practices all under the guidance of qualified surf coaches.  This is an ideal activity for the winter months when it is too cold to surf. The lake is only knee deep so it is perfect for beginners. Students will not just learn a new skill but have a lot of fun along the way.
 
We understand that camps are expensive activities for families and have endeavoured to keep costs as low as possible. Consequently, we have not booked buses and will organise carpooling arrangements closer to the date.
 
Please complete the online Permission/medical form and finalise payments prior to 19  November 2018.  Further details regarding what to pack will follow.
 
 
Please also note that should your child have a medical condition which may impact on participation in any of the above activities they must be cleared by a medical practitioner prior to participation. 
 
Should your child require medication to be administered whilst on camp please collect and complete permission to do so from our Administration Building prior to camp.
