Year 9 Glenworth Valley

Newcastle Grammar School

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Year 9 “Sharing leadership and building friendship for the future”

The theme for the camp is for all Year 9 students to develop and consolidate their good communication and leadership skills. The students will demonstrate their ability to work effectively and willingly in collaboration with others. They will listen and act with empathy and understanding within their group. This occurs within the context of a program that is physically more challenging and requires working interdependently with team members. They will gain insight into the value of teamwork and shared responsibilities.
