Time: 2 hours.
Campfire & Marshmallows / Survivor Story Presentations Music
No trip to the outback is complete, without a night sitting under the stars with your mates, sharing stories, jokes, poems and singing songs around a camp fire. Students will enjoy sitting around a memorising gidgee fire, taking the time to reflect on their outback experience before enjoying some marshmallows cooked how you like, over gidgee coals in a safe and hygienic setting. This back drop also provides an ideal opportunity to present survivor story presentations for groups participating in this activity. Under the cover of the night sky and with the intrinsic comfort of a fire, even the most reserved of students tend to become more open to addressing a group, making this activity a fantastic time to practice structured talking in the form of stories, reflections, jokes, poems, songs and games.
Please note: Leadership activities can also be conducted in the evening.
(Visit the Tree of Knowledge Monument in the evening, when the lights make for a very spectacular display. You could walk via the Tree of Knowledge monument on the way to or home from your movie night at the Radio Theatre.)
