Year 9 Journey Program

“A successful and happy adolescence entails hundreds of conversations about what matters, who you are and what you stand for.” Steve Biddulph – Australian psychologist and world renowned author on parenting.

The Journey is a year-long program for Year 9 students challenging them physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually.

Students are guided by same gender teachers in single gender classes, through the exploration of four main questions:

  • Who am I really?
  • How do I get on with others?
  • Is there something more?
  • What is my purpose?

The Journey is a very experiential program and students are involved in a range of activities that intentionally challenge them to become more fully the person they were created to be.

By raising young people’s consciousness about transitioning from child to adult and having conversations with them about what really matters, we can assist in guiding their journey into adulthood.

Activities the students undertake during The Journey, include:

  • discussions
  • debates
  • personal story sharing
  • physical challenges
  • fitness challenges
  • public performance
  • reflection time
  • journal-keeping
  • camp
  • solo camping experience
  • healthy risk-taking
  • service to others.
