Year 10 Myall Lakes
A semi-remote environment that centres the student experience on group dynamics by applying an appropriate level of stress through bushwalking, canoeing, mountain biking, basic living and navigation over an extended timeframe. Students must function with compassion and empathy in order to effectively articulate “community”. Selfless actions are the cornerstone of this program. The simple act of preparing and sharing food will be a key tool for delivery and understanding.
This program will give students a tool for reflective contemplation and understanding of self in relation to others. Conflict resolution is addressed in “Real World” situations and individual strengths are celebrated.
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!
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.
CyclingA favourite activity among our team, cycling along a windy track together or playing group games builds resilience and independence in young people.
