Year 12 residential weekend

14 October 2016

  • Year 12 Residential trip

Year 12 residential weekend

Last weekend 43 intrepid students and 5 members of staff embarked on buses headed to Mui Ne for the year 12 residential weekend. The purpose of the weekend is to explore and experience the factors that make for good leaders and for good team members.

On arrival at our hotel the students got straight down to experiencing what being in a team was about but undertaking a round robin of practical tasks that they could only achieve if they worked as a team. It also gave us the first chance to look at leadership potential.

After the exercises we all settled down to an enormous meal in our hotel.  The number of courses, finished by a big hotpot made us all a little sleepy – just in time for an evening session with Mr Lowry on leadership and teamwork.

The next morning started bright and early for breakfast and the students then departed to Takou Mountain for a trek to the top.  This, for some, is an arduous challenge which required good team skills from the students to ensure everyone got to the top.  This they did before photos and the cable car down to the buses.

The afternoon on Saturday saw another round robin of practical team building and leadership tasks which gave the students the opportunity to put some of the ideas discussed the night before into practice.   During these exercises staff felt that there had been a marked improvement in the teamwork and some leaders were starting to come through.

The final session of the day involved a survival task (on paper) which the students had to pass as a team. Gladly I am able to report that we lost no-one on that exercise!

Returning to school on Sunday tired and ready to start another week at BVIS the students and staff enjoyed what was a productive weekend focusing on the basics of leadership and team work.
