Year 8 Classics Camp
On the 31st August, 8 students from Year 8 Latin went on a weekend away for Classics Camp in the Northern Beaches, where the boys met students from Sydney and Canberra also studying classics. On this camp, the boys learnt about Roman invective poetry, reenacted triumphal processions and gladiator battles, learnt about the Roman counting system, explored and performed stories from Roman and Greek mythology and participated in Ancient Olympics. Highlights of the weekend included the thrills and spills of the chariot racing and a special demonstration of authentic Roman, Ancient Greek, Celtic and Chinese weaponry by an Ancient weapons expert. Nicholas Disher (8/ME), Aidan Giordan (8/LE), Joel Goh (8/KL), Campbell Howe (8/MA), Manav Kalra (8/MO), Antony Litsas (8/KL), Toby Stepto (8/MO) and William Sun (8/LE) attended.
