Year 7 Camp


At Cavendish Road SHS we want to teach, reinforce and then further develop the key concept of "resilience" from the outset of your child's secondary education.  Therefore, as part of our Pastoral Care (PSC) program, each Year 7 class will spend 3 days at Resilience Camp during Term 1.  Camp is a compulsory part of our Year 7 program.

The main aim of teaching students about resilience is to help them develop the skills to cope with life's daily challenges, whether here at school or later during adulthood.  The objectives of Resilience Camp are:

1.    To offer students and PSC Teachers an opportunity to strengthen learning relationships

2.    To assist the development of resilience in our students

3.    To further develop student leadership skills

Important concepts covered on camp and during our wider PSC program will include:  coping skills, problem solving, social competence, autonomy and optimism.
