Supporting our students’ transitional journey into adulthood

Resilience Programs

Supporting the cognitive development of our young people into self-aware, responsible adults.

Our Resilience Programs have been developed to support our students to develop self-awareness, responsibility, respect and resilience.

Our Resilience Programs are safe learning spaces; as we feel it is important to create a safe and welcoming environment for discussions. By creating a unique, comfortable and fun space, students know what is expected of them for each lesson and begin to identify their environment with a specific type of activity.

Our program has excursion opportunities which allow students to get away from the everyday atmosphere of the classroom; giving them more opportunity to spend time with each other in a new environment and connect on a more personal level without the structure of a school day.

We deliver three resilience programs to support the wellbeing of our students:
