Year 9 In-School Team Building Pastoral Workshops

On Tuesday, 19 March 2019 and Wednesday, 20 March 2019 as part of the Year 9 Pastoral Wellbeing program, the Year 9 Magnolias attended an in-school workshop involving team building. The Supreme Incursions team building workshop was chosen as the focus for Year 9 to link together the values of relationships, acceptance and justice for each other within the Bethany community.

The students engaged in active sessions that combined physical team building challenges, trivia questions and augmented reality on iPads. These sessions showed links to students PDHPE, English and Mathematics courses through the challenges on the day. The activities each encouraged teamwork,cooperation, leadership and bonding for the Year 9 students. The students walked away with a new focus on team building skills such as trust, initiative, communication and respect for one another. Year 9 will now take these skills and incorporate them into their daily lives and interactions within the Bethany community.

Thank you to the Year 9 homeroom team and all other staff involved in making this incursion possible.

“Through many games and fun activities we were able to create relationships with students outside of our friendship groups, and learn how to work effectively in a team. This workshop required us to open up and share our opinions with our team to be able to find the most effective strategy to complete tasks.

Each task required us to think outside of the box and work with the people around us in order to receive points for our team, teaching us many values such as relationships and partnership.

Overall it was an enjoyable experience that taught us in life we are not always going to be with people we know, but in order to get work done we need to be able to work with people whether know them or not”
