TSP Orientation Camp Wollongong
Wednesday 20 - Friday 22 February 2019
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 and 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 put them in great stead for the rest of the school year.
The cost of the excursion is $350 which includes:
*Bus hire and transport
*Instruction and gear for all activities
Payments can be made now at the front office or on 61422977. Full payment is due by Friday 8th February.
If you would like any further information about the proposed venue or 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.
