I really enjoyed gaining my Bronze Medallion Accreditation. The course was informative and I learnt great life skills. It was great to go Rock Climbing at ‘The Hangout’. It was hard work but so much fun. Stand Up Paddle Boarding in East Perth was such an awesome experience. I look forward to the subject each week. Mya Ando & Inika Laurent
