During Year 10 students are at time in their lives where lack of motivation and likelihood of risk taking are at their highest. During these key transition years it is very easy for them to lose focus and for enthusiasm to overshadow wisdom.

We have built on 20 years experience delivering personal development programs to high schoolers to develop a full day event especially for year Tens that addresses these issues. Called Survive!, it is energetic, engaging, entertaining and (above all) it delivers outcomes that make a difference.

“I thought today would be so boring – it was the opposite. I have had the best time.”

Suitable for year 10 . 

  • Survive relationships (Parents, romance, peers)
  • Survive Year 11 & 12 (How to use the senior years as the platform for the life you want to have)
  • Survive Life (Identifying the particular dangers of late adolescence and encouraging to wise choices)
  • Survive Together (A discovery of the importance of team work through a fun activity)

The program has a strong practical orientation. Through each theme students will be confronted with issues they need to consider and provided with practical & helpful ideas they might like to use.

They will be facilitated to create their own responses to both the issues raised and the ideas presented.

By the end of the day students will be better equipped to deal with many of the issues they will face as late adolescents.

“It was excellent. The students responded very positively during and after the day. The timing and content was perfect for the year 10 cohort just as they are thinking about yr 11 and beyond. A timely reminder & will act as a precursor to the subject selection process”
