On Wednesday, 27 November, the Year 10 cohort travelled on the school bus (music pumping for the duration of the trip, of course) to Yeppoon to enjoy the annual ‘Year 10 Activity Day’. Once arrived at the beach, the girls dispersed across Yeppoon – some walking to the Yeppoon Lagoon, some to the sandy beaches and others (perhaps the majority) directly to food. A few hours later, the girls clambered back onto the bus (a select few with slightly pink-looking shoulders) and travelled to the next destination, the Kershaw Gardens. Here, the girls seemed to travel back in time and became 7-year-old children once again. Between climbing up and sliding down on the playground and running (but mostly falling over) on a hamster wheel, and a Maccas stop at the very end, the Activity Day most definitely ended on a high.
A few hours later, the girls became young women once again and met at the Rocky Sports Club in semi-formal finery. After a half-hour photo shoot for the ‘gram, the girls sat down to highly classy dinners of crumbed steak, pizza and other assortments. Post a Secret Santa exchange, a class PowerPoint developed by the year 10 class leaders was enjoyed by the rest of the cohort, and (following in the footsteps of the Year 12s) Most Likely Certificates were awarded to every student and to Ms Fullagar and Ms Doherty. An emotional farewell surprise for departing student Frankie Watson followed suit, with a surprise speech and short video compilation of her time at Girls Grammar.
The Year 10 cohort would like to express their gratitude to both Ms Fullagar and Ms Doherty for their supervision of both the beach day and the dinner, and a special thanks to Frankie Watson and Abbie Mallyon for their exceptional leadership of the girls throughout 2019.
