Over the past two weeks, we have had a number of valuable experiential learning programs take place for Year 9 and 10.

These programs add immeasurably to the core academic programs at Scotch Oakburn College and have provided plenty of real life challenges. Year 9 programs, Community Service and Building Healthy Communities, and this week’s Year 10 programs, Education Outdoors and Work Experience, have given our students opportunities to develop skills and learn much more about themselves and their future options.

In speaking to the Education Outdoors team every evening during their regular call in,  I have heard stories of excellent team work, acceptance of other’s abilities and plenty of wet weather adaptation.

Thank you to all the staff, who have spent hours in planning, implementing and engaging our Year 9 and 10 students over the past two weeks.
