TSP Orientation Camp Wollongong
Wednesday 21st - Friday 23rd February 2018
As the coordinator of the TSP program at Erindale College, I have arranged for our Sports Academy students to participate in a three day Orientation and Team Building program at Stanwell Park, near Wollongong. This program will be conducted by ‘The Tops Conference Centre’ staff who specialises in providing school groups the opportunity of individual challenge through a variety of adventure activities.
The primary aim of this initiative is to introduce our students to leadership, team building and adventure through a variety of activities requiring lateral thinking, problem solving and physical fitness. It is also an opportunity for students to get to know each other in comfortable surrounds as it offers an amazing location, comfortable accommodation, exciting adventure, recreational activities and great food.
It is our firm belief all students attending the trip will get great benefit from participating in the program which will stand them in great stead for the rest of the school year.
The cost of the excursion is $310 which includes:
*Bus hire and transport
*Instruction and gear for all activities
Payments can be made now at the front office or via the payment methods listed here. Full payment is due by Friday 9th February.
If you would like any further information about the proposed venue pr activities program, you can go to the website www.thetops.com.au or contact me at school on 61422978. We hope you support this very worthwhile opportunity.

RECOGNITION FOR A VERY BRAVE EFFORT
During the Canberra Day long weekend earlier this year a family outing almost turned to tragedy when a Canberra man and three of his children were swept away by a rip at Denhams Beach, near Batemans Bay.
Fortunately, another family group were close by and Erindale College Year 11 student William Nash, and his father Kevin, quickly responded and rescued all four people successfully. The family were all treated by NSW Emergency Services on the beach and the 39 year old father was later air-lifted to Royal Canberra Hospital. William reflected later that “if it had been 30 seconds later, he (the father) would have been gone.”
On September 7th, William and his father attended the 2017 ACT Aquatic Industry and Water Safety Awards and were recipients of the prestigious AUSTRALIAN RESCUE MEDAL from the Royal Life Saving Society-Australia. This was a rare nomination with the Medals being issued to only three ACT residents previously.
Congratulations to both William and his father Kevin from everyone at Erindale College.
