Year 5 and 6 Ecoventure Update

Year 5 and 6 Ecoventure Update by The Nadeen Team at Ecoventure

Dear Parents, 

We are excited to provide you with an update regarding the Year 5 and 6 Ecoventure trip taking place this week. Once again the Nadeen Year 5 and 6 students have been outstanding!

We are all thrilled to participate in full days of outdoor adventure activities. The morning starts early with a full breakfast to fuel our bodies for the exciting day ahead.

Our first activity is climbing, and as we approach the towering rock wall, excitement and nervousness fill the air. We strap on our harnesses and helmets, preparing ourselves for the challenge. Slowly but surely, we make our way up the wall, shouting words of encouragement to one another. Each victory cheered on by the rest of the group, creating a sense of camaraderie and accomplishment.


After the climbing session, we head towards the archery range. The bows feel slightly unfamiliar in our students’ hands, but with guidance from the instructors, they soon find their rhythm. The focus required to hit the target is intense, and we cheer each other on with every successful shot. The feeling of hitting the bullseye is exhilarating, boosting our confidence and igniting our competitive spirits.
Next on the agenda is a problem-solving activity that challenges our teamwork skills. We are divided into groups and given a series of puzzles and riddles to solve. It requires us to communicate effectively, listen to each other’s ideas, and think critically. It is amazing to witness the power of collaboration as the students solve each problem together, laughing and celebrating their victories.
The afternoon is dedicated to sports, starting with a game of football and then basketball. The dusty playing fields became our battleground as we strategise and put our skills to the test. The shouts of excitement echo across the field as goals are scored, and the friendly rivalry pushes us to give our best. Despite the exhaustion, spirits remain high.
After the intense physical activities, we have a moment to catch our breath as we embark on the Catwalk Aerial Challenge. Walking on a thin rope, beam, and planks suspended high above the ground requires immense concentration and balance. The feeling of accomplishment when each student successfully makes it to the other side or gets as close as they can, is indescribable, and we all cheer each other on as we conquer the height and fear.
To end the day on a calming note, we head to the serene waters for a canoeing session. With paddles in hand, we explore the tranquil waters, appreciating the beauty of nature around us. The rhythm of the paddling unites us as we glide across the water, creating memories that will last a lifetime.
Despite our tired bodies, smiles are still plastered on our faces as we head back to the Dining Room for a healthy evening meal of Spaghetti Bolognese, Corn Pasta, Bar-b-que Chicken, and Potato wedges followed by a delicious dessert of Jelly and Fresh Fruit Salad. The nourishment revives our energy as we chat about the day’s adventures, reliving the thrilling moments with newfound friends.
To cool off from the day’s activities, we head to the swimming pool. The refreshing water envelopes us as we splash and swim, washing away the exhaustion and leaving only contentment. The laughter and playful banter echo through the air, a testament to the bonds formed during our outdoor adventure and the unending spirit of the Nadeen students!
The day is packed with thrilling activities that push our limits and bring us closer together. The informal and relaxed atmosphere allows us to fully immerse ourselves in the excitement and the joy of each activity. 
As we reflect on the day’s events, we realise that these outdoor adventures have not only challenged us physically but also nurtured our teamwork, resilience, and appreciation for nature. It is a day that will forever be cherished in our memories.
As the sun sets again at the end of our second day we look forward to a good night’s sleep and the thrilling events that await us all in the days ahead.
