Welcome back to Roxy Hellwege, Cecily Pope, Hannah Parkin, Joshua Miller, Ned Hogan & Zane Pierzchalski. These 6 students have spent Term 1 living up at Dinner Plain at the Alpine School for Student Leadership developing their independence and resilience through alternative educational challenges.
Throughout the term students have been working on personal development skills, like communication, metacognition and self awareness; as well as leadership skills like teamwork and community engagement. Students were also tried and tested on outdoor experience hikes and camps to test their resilience and problem solving skills. In addition to all these wonderful learning experiences the students worked on creating a Community Learning Project which they will implement back here at BSC with a connection to the Southern Autistic School next door to help raise awareness for autism and foster relationships between our two schools.
A big thank you also to all of their peers helping the 6 intrepid travellers settle back in to life at BSC. There is often a readjustment period and all the wonderful smiling friends around the cohort is lovely to see.
