Melville Intermediate - Mrs Basset on the Rope Swing

One of the absolute highlights of the Y8 Camp was on the final day, Mrs Basset, the teacher from Room Eighteen had told Kylie (a student from Room Eighteen) that if she did the Abseiling then she would do the Rope Swing. An epic event as it took nearly ten minutes to be completed, that we've had to edit for the purpose of time limits on the blog.

    PS Did Mrs Bassett go back and have another turn?

  5. Hi room 8
    Was it cool to see your teacher doing the rope swing? Did you enjoy doing it yourselves? Your teacher was very brave.
