Year 8 Tallebudgera Camp

Date: August 24, 2016     Posted by: Carmel Cowley

The  Year 8 Tallebudgera Camp was a great oppurtunity for the students to spend some time together and challenge themselves as they undertook a range of activities from Stand Up Paddle Boarding to rock climbing. Perhaps the most interesting activity to observe was the rock climbing. When climbing, many of the students were busy grappling for hand holds looking to drag themselves up the cliff face. Their climbing was limited to the handholds they could find. Doing
this meant they were literally trying to lift themselves on the finger tips of one arm. A feat only achievable by those with incredible power to body weight ratios and the ability to do multiple one armed chin ups!
Some of the students quickly realised that they had to use bigger muscle groups to climb the cliff face. Meaning they weren’t looking for handholds to drag themselves up the cliff but rather using handholds for balance while they used footholds to push themselves up the cliff. Instead of scrabbling for handholds believing they could pull themselves up the cliff they instead realised that they could not climb higher until they had moved their lowest extremity higher.
There are a number of learning points in this for all of us. The first being that to move forward we have to move from our lowest point first and the second that if we use our strengths to push ourselves upward we will not only have a greater chance to succeed but we will be able to sustain our efforts for a much longer period of time. As the Year 8s watched each other succeed or fail they learned from the experiences of their peers and this empowered them to do better.
