Journey based programs

The journey based program takes students to the next level with a strong emphasis on leadership, social responsibility and protecting the natural world. Journey based programs can include a variety of adventurous and challenging activities that are used as tools to assist students in reaching set learning outcomes.

The aim is for students to be immersed in a supportive and safe environment that allows them to learn through doing.

The program will be designed around students taking ownership and responsibility for achieving set group objectives. This promotes positive individual growth that takes into consideration the physical, mental, emotional and social challenges that students may encounter.

  • Hiking expeditions
  • Canoeing expeditions
  • Embedded local Indigenous content and activities
  • Roping – natural surface abseil and rock climbing

  • Problem solving initiatives
