Murray River Journey- Group 1
Ballarat Grammar School
The Year 8 Murray Challenge is a 4-day outdoor journey with a focus on Respect. Respect for ourselves, for each other, and the world in which we live. This is the third OEG facilitated program in their senior school progression. Students will be required to work together in teams to achieve the outcomes of the program.
These outcomes will be achieved whilst paddling around beautiful Murray River Region. Students will further develop skills such as, managing the aspects of communal living and cooking together. Their success will depend on their teamwork and communication skills as they learn more about themselves and each other.
CampingCamping out in tents is our speciality! We love telling stories around the campfire, looking up at the night sky and creating memories that will last a lifetime!
TEAMWORKStrengthening communication, conflict resolution, rapport-building, persuasion, and organisational and planning outcomes.
Raft BuildingWorking together, students design and build a raft out of available materials then test it out on the water, raft building is loved by students of all ages.
