Year 5 have been on camp ⛺️ in Temburong this week. A huge thank you to all the staff involved in creating wonderful memories for our students. Mrs Heeger, Mr Dave, Ms Siti, Ms Zahrah, Mrs Hawkins, Ms Lei and Mr Russell ensured every Yr5 student had the opportunity to experience jungle activities unique to Brunei. We shared hundreds of photos with Yr5 families and we hope they create many opportunities for shared stories over the coming weekend. Just a small selection of these photos are also included below to give you a flavour of what they got up to. There was river swimming, games, orientation activities, village walks, late night treks, marshmallow toasting, Iban folklore and storytelling, wake-up exercises, jungle knowledge and survival classes, rice wrapping, delicious food, bamboo chicken, cultural Iban dancing and music, a talent show, eco-craft, painting, blowpipes, fishing and cooking of kuih lenggang. Such an amazing adventure! Photos at the bottom of this page 📸 👇👇
