Unique program builds confidence and resilience and it's a whole lot of fun!
Each year students from the GippsTAFE Employment and Transitional Training (GETT) Centre challenge themselves, pushing their limits to build resilience and confidence.
Rain, hail or shine, “Survivor Days” are always a highlight on the GETT Centre calendar. Students and staff say goodbye to the classroom and put their skills and knowledge to the test in a range of unique and challenging settings.
“Outdoor activities are designed to encourage students to work as a team and to use the problem solving techniques and communication skills they have learnt in the classroom,” says GETT Centre Team Leader, Michael Duncan.
“The different activities are plenty of fun, giving students the chance to develop resilience in an enjoyable and supportive environment.”
Building rafts, hiking, cooking, bush camping, treasure hunts and orienteering are just some of the great activities enjoyed on these days. The program visits a range of great local destinations. Licola, Erica, Waratah Bay and Wilsons Prom are some of the participants’ favourite locations, as well as the much loved adventure park ‘The Summit’ in Trafalgar.
“Survivor Days” are run twice each term and students involved in the program come away with a sense of belonging, achievement and success.
To take part students must be enrolled in the Certificate I in Transition and Work Education or M.O.R.E program at the GETT Centre. To find out more phone 5136 3600.
