Year 8 - Yarrahapinni

Redlands

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Building on the Year 7 themes of developing meaningful relationships, this program infuses concepts of collaborative and responsible decision-making with a focus on increased personal and social awareness.

A range of foundation skills will be taken to the next level with heightened expectations placed on students in the supported environment provided by the Redlands and OEG staff. The local environment presents the perfect balance to allow students to push their comfort zones and continue to build their resilience in the face of challenges. An extended solo reflective time and pastoral care session into this program allows students to explore where they fit into the community at Redlands.
