Year 4 - Fitzroy Falls Conference Centre

Redlands

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Year 4 program focuses on the students embracing “challenge by choice”. Activities will offer opportunities for students to welcome challenge, identify achievements and build self-confidence.
Opportunities will exist for students to find new ways to take initiative, contribute to the group by leading and supporting others. The theme of managing emotions will also be explored, including dealing with conflict and making compromises to build community and a sense of belonging. Students are encouraged to show empathy and to develop person courage when adapting to change and unfamiliar situations.
