On Wednesday 24th May, several Rivendell students and staff members attended Sydney Distance Education High School (SDEHS) for the annual ‘The Big Day In‘ excursion.
The popular excursion is a chance for students to come together and socialise with students from other schools, as well as enjoy a variety of fun activities. ‘The Big Day In’ was also a great opportunity for many Rivendell students to meet their SDEHS teachers.
The focus of this year’s event was ‘body, mind, spirit‘ and students had a wonderful time participating in history trivia, field sports, cooking, meditation, yoga, poetry, and crafts (just to name a few). There was even an adorable petting zoo!
Students were strongly encouraged to have a go at all the different activities, and were given stickers for each one that they attempted. Prizes were given out at the end of the day for those who participated in the most amount of activities. A $50 Westfield voucher was also awarded as a raffle prize – which one of our lucky Rivendell students actually won!
The feedback from the day was all very positive and we thank all the students who came along and represented Rivendell so well.
