Jabiru & Kakadu
During this 10 day program students will work on personal and interpersonal development, using Haileybury’s ACHIEVE framework to guide the facilitation. Jabiru and the Kakadu area have been home to Aboriginal people for more than 65,000 years. Aboriginal rock paintings, dating to prehistoric times, can be viewed at sites such as Ubirr. Students will arrive in Jabiru via a flight to Darwin and bus trip from Darwin to Jabiru. There they will spend the week involved in cultural activities, a bushwalk and bouldering journey through Brockman Plateau. The environment is very hot and humid as a result, this week will be very challenging at times but will also involve fantastic opportunity to experience a completely different environment while learning different ways to connect with peers, staff and the landscape.
BushwalkingBe it a day's hike or a short walk to camp, bushwalking engages all our senses allowing us to explore nature and our place within it. And we always find something exciting along the way!
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!
CulturalEncourage an understanding and appreciation for history and diversity by connecting students to a different way of life through storytelling, bushcraft and more.
CanoeingFollowing the flow of the river, we love to explore the waterways on our canoes. Working as a team, using our muscles and problem-solving together to reach our base for the night.
