Self Reliant Journey

Self Reliant Journey

In Week 5 of Term 3, the Stage 2 Outdoor Education students undertook their Self Reliant Journey. Twenty-four Darwin High students and four teachers trekked the Barramundi Creek loop to Maguk.

It was a tough and at times challenging walk, with students travelling over approximately 50 kilometres of difficult terrain.

The self-reliant journey is the culmination of the Outdoor Education Program with the students putting into practice all the learning they have done throughout Stage 1 and 2. They lead the trip, including taking responsibility for team dynamics and risk and environmental management, and they do all of the navigation. This year’s team demonstrated exceptional outdoor leadership skills, pushing each other to their limits and supporting each other when things got tough.

Everyone was conscious of the fact that they were in one of the most remote parts of Kakadu and enjoyed the spectacular scenery unique to the Territory.

Congratulations to the Stage 2 class and their teachers on a fantastic effort.
