The Waratah Centre takes to the skies

On Wednesday the 10th of April 2019, as a part of our positive reward system, the Waratah Centre was fortunate enough to take a helicopter ride of Sydney Harbour and its beaches.

This experience was earned by the students based on their;

1.       Attendance

2.       IEP milestone results

3.       Making a noticeable positive change in behaviour

Five students started their tour from Sydney Airport, hovering over the Sydney Cricket Ground, Randwick Racecourse and eventually reaching the Opera house and Harbour Bridge. The flight then banked north towards manly and North Head, turning south to follow the coastal walk along Bondi Beach to Coogee.

"I was very nervous before going on the helicopter because I had never been on one before. I watched the first group go up in the helicopter and it was moving around a lot so that made me even more nervous. After the helicopter landed and I got out I realised that it was probably one of the best things I have done in my entire life!!! I loved it."

-          Faith Devitt, Year 11.

A big thank you to Blue Sky Tours for assisting us in this experience. It was truly an amazing experience that our students will never forget.

Lastly congratulations to Jaydan Nicholson for taking the best photo of the day! See below. Requested by local Bondi Tourism to use as apart of their promotional page. Well done!
