Theme: Steps

Year 8 is a critical age of growth for students as they are facing a time of increasing freedom from parents and staff, yet still require a certain level of support. Building on the connections created in Year 7, Year 8 students work to develop a sense of place through critical thinking and further developing personal and social competence throughout their program. In creating self-awareness, we can allow students to develop a better sense of place and form a foundation from which to “Step”. 

Some of these are to Step up and take on the challenge, Step back and allow others to take the lead, Step sideways out of the challenge and acknowledge the limit of their comfort zone. All decisions require support which is provided through professional facilitation by our staff. Through various outdoor adventures, students are confronted with the role which they must play. 

The Year 8 program provides numerous resources and opportunities for students to live and breathe environmental responsibility and sustainability.
