Adventures with Migrant Education Students

Migrant Education Week

Our Migrant Education week was an amazing experience for the Certificate IV Outdoor Recreation team.

During the week the student’s had the opportunity to hear many incredible stories about the life and journeys of the TasTAFE migrant students, that were both humbling and inspiring. They participated in a Students against Racism class that educates people about everyday racism and how it effects people.

The Certificate IV Outdoor Recreation students then had the opportunity to take the students out abseiling and climbing at Blackmans Bay. It was a very rewarding experience to see students overcome their trepidation as they hung over the blowhole with water surging below them.  Then to see their smiling faces when they got to the bottom.

It was time to face those fears for a second time in two days as the students then strapped on their PFD’s (personal flotation devices), wetsuits and helmets for an adventure down the Derwent River with the rafting guide students.  What started off with a little apprehension soon became a fun filled journey meandering our way down the rapids.   A great day for all!

Thanks to everyone involved in creating this amazing experience – it won’t be forgotten!
