The Wild Journey program is run as a partnership between Heathmont College and EACH, a community-based organisation. This program has been designed to strengthen and develop key learning skills in students such as self regulation, communication, perseverance and effective collaboration.
The program is run each Thursday as outlined below and will culminate in a 5 day camp. This program is completely funded and carries no cost. In consenting to this event you are giving permission for your child to participate in each of the Thursday activities. A separate event will be created for the camp that will have its own consent separate to this.
