The activities at Helidon are purpose built for developing teamwork and leadership qualities and are typically based around epic ANZAC events. The Helidon program is an important element in preparing Year 12 students for the very busy preparation and completion of their final exams. During the range of team building activities students were challenged, inspired and empowered to complete each task. They were told stories about the ANZAC spirit and inspired to develop courage, mateship and perseverance through the Kokoda challenge in the mud and the night march. The Year 12s rose to the task, displaying leadership and teamwork to complete each activity. Thank you to parents for providing inspiring notes of support, to the teachers who supported the students and Ms Fenwick for organising the retreat.
