Why this petition matters

Started by Year 10 Advocate

To the VSC community,


It comes with great sadness that we tell you our 2022 Year 10 Central Australia Camp has been cancelled. We understand how it could be difficult to organise a camp halfway across the country, given the COVID-19 and administrative situation. But us Year 10’s still deserve a chance to get away with our friends and have fun. 


While a camp interstate is pretty unrealistic, a Victoria-based activity is feasible. Especially since the Year 7’s and 12’s have already gone on very successful trips. We’ve already missed two years worth of camps and extracurricular activities, and this may be some students’ last ever opportunity to go on a school camp. Additionally, Year 10 camp could be a learning experience: to raise our awareness of the cultural history of our country, or develop important life skills.


We have had two long, hard years of learning and socialising from home. Hence, a chance to get together and just enjoy ourselves is much needed in our school community. After being apart for so long, this is a perfect opportunity to reconnect with peers we have missed so much. Going to school camps is extremely beneficial to our mental health and boosts our wellbeing. It provides a much needed break from studying, and also some time to hang out socially.


Although a camp which crosses three states may not be possible, there are many alternative camps or activities in Victoria that could be organised. There are many wonderful locations waiting for us right in our backyard. It doesn’t even have to be a camp. A week of exciting day-trip activities would be just as brilliant. We were really looking forward to travelling all the way to Darwin and are disappointed that the Central Australia camp will not be going ahead. That being said, as long as we are all together, out exploring the world, us Year 10s would be glad.


So please, dear school community, join us in this fight for fun. Please sign and send this petition to all your friends, family and VSC staff members. Every person you share this with will be helping us to embark on a grand adventure. 


Thank you for your time! :D
