Venture Club Tree Climbing
On Sunday 24 February, a number of keen students and parents ventured out to the parklands to visit the Tree Climb - Adelaide’s first inner city aerial adventure park. Located on the corner of Greenhill and Unley roads, the Tree Climb offers 7 elevated tree-top courses of varying difficulty, including zip lines, that allowed the students to swing, leap and fly through the trees. In addition to the physical course, integrated throughout the obstacles is an education trail, that allowed all those participating to gain a deeper understanding about the unique history of the Adelaide parklands and the surrounding environment. Overall, the day was a great success, with everyone leaving having had a fantastic time. It was a excellent opportunity for students of many years levels to bond together over the challenges that were encountered, particularly students new to the school, as well as an opportunity to get out outdoors and do so some exercise. The Tree Climb, being located so close to the school, is a great resource that both the Venture Club and other co- curricular clubs will hopefully use in the future to challenge students beyond the classroom.
