During Year 9 Endeavour the boys have been exploring all manner of life skills.
To date this semester the boys that have not been on community service have been looking at:
What it means to be mentally healthy including having a go at yoga! It was probably the noisiest yoga class I have ever done but seemed to hit the right note with the boys.
What makes a good role model and the benefits of having a good role model.
Exam preparation skills.
The power of a positive mindset which came in handy when meeting the challenges of Alpine Camp.
More recently the boys learnt the all-important life skills of how to tie a Double Windsor tie knot, to iron a shirt and to sew a button on a shirt. The concentration was intense and the opportunity to learn these skills was very well received. We even had some Year 11 students curiously looking in and keen to have a go. Looks like we need to extend the opportunity!
