This year, another group of Year 10 students travelled to Daly River in the Northern Territory with teachers Mr Toome, Mr Lodge, Ms Tremonte, Mr Grundy and Mrs Fleming. When arriving at the airport, students were immediately faced with heat and humidity from the Northern Territory! Students spent the first portion of the trip staying at Banyan Farm in Daly River, an accessible base to attend community mass, visit local schools to deliver science lessons, and complete cultural activities with Miriam Rose and her foundation. Students did a welcome to country at the crossing, and had the opportunity to either cook damper or roast kangaroo tail on a campfire, and visit a billabong to pick lotus seeds. After leaving Banyan Farm, students travelled to Nitmiluk National Park to camp, swam at Edith Falls, and used this as a base to visit Katherine and canoe in the magnificent gorge. The trip concluded with the final three nights at the Frontier Hotel in Darwin, where students explored museums and various attractions that the Northern Territory has to offer. New friendships were formed and lessons learnt, primarily the importance of taking a step back from the materialistic world and to live in the moment with each other!
