Year 9 Journey students hike Mount Lofty
Our Year 9 Journey students hiked Mt Lofty with many opportunities to display teamwork, encouragement, and perseverance, which are key aspects of the Journey program.
The day also involved special ceremonies to mark the transition into adulthood, vowing to let go of childhood behaviours and looking forward to taking on new responsibilities.
One of the student’s observed, ‘The Mt Lofty walk ironically symbolises our journey through Year 9; how it is important to stay together in the steep parts and re-gather strength on the plateaus.’
These activities are significant elements of the year-long Journey program of growth, self-awareness and discovery as our young people begin the transition from childhood to adulthood.
