Year 9 Songlines Experience 2021

This week, Year 9 enjoyed their Songlines Experience onsite and on the Upper Colo. There was lots of courage, cooperation and mud!

This year has been challenging and Year 9 were looking forward to stepping outside of their comfort zone and building relationships with their peers during the Year 9 Experience. Day 1 saw the grade embark on a journey to the Upper Colo where they were physically challenged; many conquered their fear of heights, others came back more mud than human, and everyone had a grin on their face. The defining characteristics of the day were everyone having a go and encouraging one another.

Day 2 was back at school and students honed their teamwork and communication skills through a series of Survivor and Lego activities. Brains often won out over brawn, but all students combined to create a relaxed and excited atmosphere. Gifting the Lego used in the challenges to Heart Kids was a way that students could be “a person for others”.

During final reflections students described the experience as “fun”, “memorable”, “eye-opening” and a “challenge”. Year 9 will sleep well after these full-on days.

Year 9 certainly had F.U.N!
