2018 Ratu Alipate Primary School- Based Camp

RATU ALIPATE PRIMARY SCHOOL-BASED 2018 CAMP 

 

Ratu Alipate Primary School held its School Based Camp for the Brownies, Cubs, Girl Guides and Scouts with a total of 61 registered campers from Years 3 – 8.

 

The camp opening ceremony and registration started at 1.00pm on Friday, June 1st, 2018. The Head Teacher was the Chief Guest for the opening ceremony.  Camping was planned to be done outdoors however; the adverse weather conditions shifted the camp indoors. Campers were grouped into 4 patrols namely the Northen Wolves, Eastern Gorillas, Southern Donkeys and West Tigers. Two patrols were put into a Sub- Camp. The Northern Wolves and West Tigers were in the Vunisinu Sub- Camp; while the Southern Donkeys and Eastern Gorrilas were put in the Navunikavika Sub- Camp.

 

 The wet weather conditions did not dampen the spirit of the young scouts as they took part in their indoor and outdoor activities. The activities were held at the following 4 bases:

The camp fire had to be conducted indoors on Saturday night (June2nd, 2018) due to the heavy downfall and soggy ground conditions during the duration of the camp. Our Camp Chief was Mr. Sakeasi Lautari, the Manager of the school. He stressed on the importance of the activities taken during the camp and expressed his gratitude towards the teachers for organising the camp and taking Extra- Curricular Activities in the school. Each patrol presented 2 items each which left the audience falling off their seats with laughter. All scouts received a Certificate of Participation during the camp fire. The school Committee also presented each troop a parcel of snacks as their token of appreciation for participating in the camp.

 

The campers broke camp on Sunday, June3rd, 2018, at 8 0’clock in the morning after cleaning the school compound.
