I find the activities highly motivating and valuable for our students each year. It is particularly useful when the children are planning their approach for becoming Student Leaders in Year 6. I would highly recommend this Excursion from an educator’s perspective”

Students find the courage to be vulnerable. In doing so, they emerge as a more understanding, cohesive and potentially powerful team, ready to take on the challenge of school leadership.”
