This program is delivered each school term with participants undertaking a variety of games and play activities. The program content reflects a range of authentic and practical learning methods currently provided in local primary schools and includes support to participants developing leadership potential.
This program is designed so that students can explore their own values and perspectives around what it means to be active both physically, mentally/emotionally, and socially and links these concepts to practices within the wider community. It is important that the inquiry and integrated nature of this program is open for community exploration so that all participants, supported by their teachers and peers, can meet their potential.
