Year 9 Lake Eildon

Salesian College Sunbury

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Understanding and embracing Challenge is an integral part of this outdoor educational experience. Students will be exposed to community living, cooking their own food, group problem solving, and taking personal responsibility as they undertake a canoe and bushwalk journey around Lake Eildon.

The real-world learning outcomes of this program will involve students taking ownership for their decisions and making those decisions in consideration of the needs of the group. Their comfort zones will be pushed, and the students will have opportunities to build independence and initiative by responding to the challenges of the environment and the daily activities.
