On Friday 17th February, we had the most amazing experience! Despite the rain, hail, thunder and lightning, the 2017 Senior School Leadership team braved the elements to participate in a City Scramble in Newcastle. Teams were challenged to race around Newcastle, from Horseshoe Beach to Empire Park, taking photos, competing in challenges and collecting items. The day entailed taking a photo with a random high-vis clothed worker, to begging a lady at the bank for a foreign coin, to taking temporary shelter from the sideways rain behind a bush and convincing Mr Martin to give us a little lift in the bus (after all, the rules never mentioned no vehicular transport!).
The day was nothing like I expected! Working as a team to complete the challenges was great fun! Starting with a bubble-gum blowing competition and ending with a delicious candle-lit dinner back at school, being served by the teachers, the day was nothing short of fantastic! A huge thanks to all the teachers who gave up their time to make Friday such a special day for us.
