We are excited to announce the riding program is scheduled to re-commence in Term 4. The remaining three weeks of the program will be conducted at Kurshonbrooke Lodge, Gumdale.

The aims of the activity are: 

Equine Assisted Learning is a unique and innovative form of experiential learning where students grow and develop new educational, social and emotional knowledge and skills via relational experiences with horses. Horses value and respond to authentic interactions and so this program designed to empower and educate students through these unbiased connections and relationships. 

Throughout the program, students will have a deeper knowledge and skills of: 

  • How to interact with others in a positive way
  • Verbal and non-verbal communication
  • How to work together as a team 

Benefits to the students: 

  • At the conclusion of the program it is intended that students will:
  • Feel more confident and empowered to ‘have-a-go’ (safe risk-taking)
  • Feel more confident and empowered to solve problems in social situations (friendships and teamwork).
