On Monday 28th of September, the Riverside Grade 10s departed for a long bus journey heading to Austria! Screen Shot 2015-10-09 at 18.04.13

After a very loud and long eight-hour bus ride, we finally arrived.


With the many activities planned such as rafting, kayaking, ropes course, mountain carting, zorbing, archery, mountain biking and a full day hike, the grade 10 started their week full of energy and ready to try new things.With a lot of free time on our hands after and between activities, many students decided to play sports.

Others went for a much more relaxing and effortless way to spend their time.

The week was very sunny with very cold evenings.

The week zoomed by until a very feared day came: Thursday! A full day hike! The hike started out gently and slowly the steepness grew until it felt like we were all going to die.

A very well deserved lunch break in the sun. Some made their way back down afterwards while some headed for the top.

It was a long and tiring walk to the top, but it came with a rewarding view over the Austrian mountains.

The grade 10s returned that Friday evening very tired. Surprisingly, the ride back was much more peaceful and quiet. The grade 10s and especially grade 10 teachers who participated in most activities came back exhausted with many great memories of all the experiences they went through.
