The Pre-primary sleepover is the children’s introduction to the camps programme at Helena College, and it is always a very exciting time. At five o’clock on Friday night, the children came back to school and after a goodbye kiss for mums and dads, they set up their beds in Helena House Hall.

Then it was time for the activities. First, we made fruit kebabs and then a placemat to use at dinner. Once it was dark, we headed out with torches in hand for a fun walk around the school and to explore the night sky. The sky was clear enough to see stars and we also heard some wildlife in the bush. After all that excitement the children snuggled into their sleeping bags, watched a movie on the big screen and drifted off to sleep. All the children were fantastic sleepers and enjoyed waking up with their friends next to them. After breakfast and a play in the new STEM room their parents came to collect them.

The sleepover is a wonderful way for the children to begin their camp experience, developing long-lasting relationships and building a sense of community within their classroom. A big thank you to Donna Fox, Michelle Ferraro and Camille Mason for their support on the night.
