Beyond Boundaries: Growth Through Adventure and Challenge
“We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements in life, when all that we need to make us happy is something to be enthusiastic about” Charles Kinsley
Welcome Back to Term 4!
We have come back to Term 4 with a bang! Our Year 8 girls are returning from the famous Mitchell River Beyond Boundaries program.
The girls were guided and supported to step out of their comfort zones and learn new skills while consolidating ongoing employability skills such as problem solving, adaptability, self-management, teamwork and communication. These skills are all pertinent to master in order to adapt to the ever changing society and job security of the future.
Congratulations to all the girls for showing independence, resilience and courage.

Our outdoor education program focuses on the development of 21st Century skills.
What are 21st Century skills?
- Critical Thinking
- Creative Thinking
- Social Skills
To hold the jobs of the future, students also need to think deeply about issues, solve problems creatively, work in teams, communicate clearly in many media, learn ever-changing technologies, and deal with a flood of information. The rapid changes in our world require students to be flexible, to take initiative and lead when necessary, and to produce something new and useful. For further information click here.
