The Hands on Learning program in Years 9 and 10 is a practical school wellbeing program that builds engagement and develops social and emotional skills, confidence and capacity. Students spend one day every week outside the classroom working collaboratively on authentic creative projects around the school and in the local community.
The program includes a carefully defined day with expectations, boundaries and consistent parameters, real projects, and structured reflective practice is at the heart of the Hands on Learning methodology.
Hands on Learning engages students in a range of authentic and readily achievable projects – tasks that build self-confidence and self-esteem.
The program involves connecting young people with their community and is a perfect opportunity for them to experience belonging, take pride in their achievements and foster self-esteem.
