Carey Jose explained that all the activities the Year 6 students had engaged in were designed to help them focus on developing sets of mutually acceptable social rules, appropriate interactive behaviour  and working together in groups harmoniously.

She said that she was proud of the fact that all students had finished the challenging walk independently and that all students over the preceding weeks through their ongoing group work, had opportunities to take part in planning, decision-making and group leadership which helped make the day so successful.
