Throughout the last week of Term 1, more than 1,200 boys and girls from Knox and Ravenswood took part in the Annual Field Exercise (Cadet Camp) near Lithgow.
This unique co-educational experience truly challenges the students, building skills such as teamwork, leadership and resilience.
Girls and boys work together, leading each other and being led through a series of challenges such as hiking, a high ropes course, flying fox and obstacle course. The students prepare their own meals in the field over hexamine stoves and sleep under a simple hootchie flysheet in the bush.
Despite recent rain, the conditions at the camp were spectacular, allowing the activities to proceed. It was a joy to see the students work together to encourage each other and keep spirits high.
In Term 4 of Year 8, all Knox boys join the Cadet Unit and must complete at least one year of training.
Most boys opt to stay in the Cadet Unit after this first compulsory year. Girls from Ravenswood have the choice to join in Year 8, with an increasing number of girls taking up the opportunity every year.
