The Positive Culture Team is excited to be launching “Extreme”, our single period, personal and community development session. The program will be led by David Karcheski and co-leaders Jill Roberts and Phil Waddy, each of whom are highly experienced/skilled in planning and coordinating a range of youth development initiatives. We are also supported by the talents of Matt Piggott and Sam Mainwairing.
“Extreme” has the overarching goal of developing each student’s sense of connection to the College, through a structured, carnival atmosphere. Educational research overwhelmingly tells us that students are more likely to engage and succeed in their education when they develop a sense of value and belonging to their school. Every student in Year 7 to Year 9 will be attending an Extreme session each week. Each session will run as a group of three or four classes combined (over 12 sessions each week) in the College auditorium. In addition to the overarching goal, “Extreme” aims to enhance personal development through exploration of the following themes:
- School Community (SC): (What it means to be a member of the CBC community)
- Goal Setting (GS):
- Emotional Regulation (ER):
- Dealing with Conflict (DC):
