Inspire Wilderness Retreat
Junior Secondary Inspire Wilderness Retreat: Using the Natural Environment to
Enhance Learning. Throughout 2016 the Junior Secondary Department offered a free overnight
Inspire Retreat for all school-fee paying Junior Secondary students. For many
of our students, this was the first time they had been camping out in the
beautiful Scenic Rim!
Students and teachers camp on a private
property in the Christmas Creek Valley using tents provided by the school.
Students are involved in a range of activities including art workshops,
Indigenous storytelling, bush walking, historic tours of the area, damper making
on an open fire and creative story writing. This program will continue
throughout 2017 and is a fantastic opportunity for students to experience
authentic learning in the natural environment.
