At the end of June, our Certificate IV Outdoor Recreation students headed up to Whitewater Wall in the Freycinet National Park for a variety of activities.
Our specialising teams of rockclimbers and whitewater rafters split up at the start of the week. The climbers spent the first two days refreshing and refining their abseiling and top roping skills with the rafters as willing test subjects. The whitewater rafters in the meantime had been learning rope rescues and systems for upcoming trips.
At the end of the week the team began work with Parks and Wildlife Service as part of a Green Guardians project. Our students participated in a conservation project chosen by the local rangers to make a tangible difference and to help rehabilitate the Whitewater Wall campground.
This included a lot of hole digging, environmental regeneration, and lots of laughs.
