The Rite Journey
The Rite Journey is a special program for Year 9 students and their Home Group teachers.
Students are given time for personal growth to build resilience and have open and honest discussions that will be invaluable as they make the journey from adolescence to adulthood.
This year-long program has been designed by the School in conjunction with internationally renowned experts. Using a ‘rites of passage’ approach, students are encouraged to examine their values and how they affect others.
By thinking deeply in this realm, the girls can recognise who they are and make decisions about their future as well as prepare for the difficult choices they will face as they enter adulthood.
The Home Group teacher takes a central role in this course, spending up to three dedicated sessions a week with their students. The year-long program is punctuated by ceremonies and challenges, including a week-long camp and an overnight ‘solo’ camping experience.
