Newcastle was a great excursion because we went to the NBN studios and got a grand tour of the studio and behind the scenes. We also went to Nobby's Point and the RAAF fighter jets put on a show just for us.
At the Newcastle baths some of us went for a swim and bumped into Adrian Madaschi (defender for Newcastle Jets) and Mike Rabbitt from NBN again.
The wetlands and coastal walk was interesting, learning about water quality and regeneration of areas. The ropes course was a highlight for everyone, with most of us finishing the gruelling course and many conquering our fear of heights.
To top the week off, we had a little shopping adventure at Charleston Square.
Huge thanks to our year advisor Miss Cullen for organising the excursion, and Mr Harris, Mr Lacey and Miss Gerkens.
