The Vision

To implement a progressive program for Year 9 students that enables them to develop greater responsibility, independence and leadership by providing challenges which increase their level of flexibility, tolerance and co-operation, enhancing self-understanding and developing a greater appreciation for, and understanding of, the outdoor environment created for them to inhabit and preserve, and the needs of the wider community.

Teachers quickly realize that, at around 15 years of age, young people undergo a change in their attitude and behaviour. Research suggests that the observations and educational philosophy of Kurt Hahn well describes the situation these students find themselves in.
