The time is here, for nearly 12 months a group of students have been training hard to conquer one of the hardest treks in the world. The Kokoda Trek in Papua New Guinea, 96 kilometres of steep mountain ranges covered in mud, moss and a tree root system that entangles most of the Trek, like a wound up ball of string. Add 80 to 95 per cent humidity, 30 to 35 degree temperatures and torrential tropical rain which can sometimes fall for up to 6 days straight and you have an extreme challenge. We began with 14 students who believed they were up for the challenge, over the past 12 months some students have dropped out and an elite few have risen to the challenge. On Sunday the 21st October, students, Daniel, Matt and Taylor, accompanied by Dan Green (Teacher) and Tony Attard (Education Support Staff) will embark on a trek that they will remember and talk about for the rest of their lives.
We hope for an awesome and safe trip.
Tony Attard
