personal development program - PDP

The main goal of our Personal Development Program is to introduce Middle Years students to new experiences and enable them to gain some competency in what could become a life-long involvement.

The variety of activities evolves regularly, but can include archery,  fencing, photography, yoga, surfing, a range of community service activities and our popular Cadet Unit.

Students in Year 7 select two activities from the Life Experience stream. Year 8 students choose one Life Experience activity and one Community Service activity. Students in Year 9 select two activities from the Community Service stream.

Cadets is considered to be both a Life Experience and a Community Service activity because of the wide range of skills students develop and the unit’s ethic of service. This enables students from Years 7-9 to select Cadets as an option at any time. The Cadet program has been designed to facilitate personal growth and promote leadership.
