Year 8 Eildon & Wanggai

Loreto Mandeville Hall Toorak

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Year 8 program is a chance for students to discover new things about themselves and their peers, about how people can work well together in teams, and about our place in the natural world.

Through the experiences of living together for a few days away from home and engaging in some challenging activities, Year 8 girls will encounter opportunities to extend their own belief about what they are capable of and learn more about how to work more effectively as a member of a team.

This program will take place at The OEG’s Camp Eildon, on the banks of the Goulburn River. Groups for the program will be made up of up to 14 students.
