Postgrad Day at the Beach!
February 21 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm
Whether you’re a new or returning postgrad student, O-Week is a great time to make new friends, build new connections and have some fun! So come join us on Friday, Feb 21 for a day-trip to Newcastle Ocean Baths, where we’ll have some super-chill activities lined up.
9.15am: The bus will leave from the Design Bus Stop at Callaghan campus. Don’t be late! We’d hate to leave without you! We’ll arrive at the beach/ocean baths by about 9.45am.
10am: Beach volleyball and beach cricket! There are nets set up and plenty of room to play. And if you’re not big on either of these, why not go for a swim or throw down a towel and relax?
12pm: Lunch at the pavilion. We’ll have plenty of fish and chips, and some other options as well, depending on dietary requirements. (Warning: there will be seagulls. They will try to eat your chips. All your chips.)
1pm: Sandcastle competition! If you’ve never indulged in the zen nautical art of sandcastle sculpting, now’s the perfect time: we’ll have trowels and moulds to help you shape your masterpiece, and prizes to give away for the best creations. Or again, you can swim, relax or get another volleyball match in if you prefer.
2pm: The bus will depart from the ocean baths back to campus. We should arrive by 2.30pm.
For catering and logistics purposes (and because there are limited places on the bus), registration for this event is essential.
And don’t forget to bring a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen, and a towel if you’re swimming!
