After a whole 2 months’ preparation, Grade 9 finally set off for the long awaited trip to the Minya mountain. At first, we thought this would be a photo-shoot, food, souvenir type of trip, and little did we know that we signed up for long hikes and high altitudes. However, in the sweat and sunshine, we have gained far more precious memories than we could ever expect.
挖填厕所 Digging a Terrain
Shocking! Basketball team members dug out a big round hole in the ground and put up a delicate tent! And this would be our toilet for 2 days?!
More and shocking! The reason why there wasn’t much yak dung on the grass was that campers need to fill toilets?!
Even more shocking! Delicate girls would lower themselves and take the initiative to find yak dung to fill the toilet?!
We lived the life that was unheard-of!
捡木头，和教练阿布学习用物理知识解决生火问题，成功将书本中的知识灵活运用。（优秀！）Ms. Jean Luo 的自由弹唱可以出道啦！正能量歌曲也有不一样的“味道”，为我们送来好梦啦!
We picked up wood and learned from Coach Abu about how to use physics to start a fire and successfully used the knowledge in our books flexibly. (Amazing us!) Our dear Ms. Jean Luo Debuted with her spontaneous song. Positive songs always bring a different “flavor” to our lives!
We also got to roast marshmallows. Coach Lief was the marshmallow master. While ours were always burnt, his marshmallows are white and tender. Mr. Scullin’s game of Contact stretched our vocabulary in the thin, fresh air .
Away from the noisy city, the stress of school, complaints, we had the majestic mountain, the beautiful scenery, and most importantly, each other. There were so many more memories we made from our camping trip. We look forward to our next outing together!
