Fresh country air and wide-open spaces were some of the natural highlights our Year 9 and 10 boarders got to enjoy during a farm stay weekend in Moora late last term.

The boys enjoyed exploring the Crago family farm, situated 180km north of Perth in Wheatbelt country, which included feeding cattle, sheep shearing – plus opportunities to feed a new born lamb and hold turkey chicks, a first for many!

During the evening the boys enjoyed a camp meal of sausages, spuds, Vietnamese salad and spring rolls, followed by damper cooked on the campfire with golden syrup and jam.

“It was a wonderful experience for the boys,” said Mr Kheim Ly.

“There was plenty of chatter as they sat around the campfire, before rolling out their swags and enjoying a good night’s rest under the full ‘harvest’ moon.”

“Ryota, our exchange student from Japan, relished the experience to sleep in the outdoors, and Jack Crago, who commences as a boarder next year, enjoyed getting to know our current boarders and asking lots of questions about Christ Church.”
