The recent decision to cancel school camp has created much disappointment and frustration throughout Beth Rivkah Ladies College. Students are not happy for a number of reasons. Firstly, we will not be given the chance to gain friendships with people from other grades especially the year sevens and eights who are new to high school. We will also not be able to make memories and experience the achdut that only this camp can provide.Some grades (year nine) are terribly upset that they do not even have the opportunity to spend even a single night away as a grade.

To add to the previous disappointment of taking away our long awaited chance to lead song and dance which we can understand, now we are missing out on the one thing you promised us in return for our understanding. You promised that will have a chance to lead school camp, not to mention attend. Slowly we are losing more and more of the highlights that have always been appreciated by the Beth Rivkah students. Many past students from Beth Rivkah relive the wonderful experiences of school camp with pride and happiness. They have told us how much they enjoyed it and are constantly recalling memories of the kumzits,  bon fires and Friday night meals together. Do you really think Beth Rivkah should do without one of the most fun and memorable experiences? The ones that shape us and contribute to the Beth Rivkah identity?

We understand that there were limitations, and we plead with you to take into consideration our perspective on our loss.

If there truly is no possible way to make an entire school camp happen perhaps we can propose a compromise. How about considering the following options?

A) School camp for years 8-12 (year sevens can have a shabbaton or other options)

B) Split school in half and do two small camps(7-9 and 10-12) so at least we can bond with other years.

C) We would happily sit with you and brainstorm other ideas.
