In the Year 9-10 Village the wellbeing program enables students to explore their developing sense of identity.

This is especially evident in the Duke of Edinburgh Program, which fosters leadership, a sense of adventure and a commitment to improving self and others. The Bronze Dukes, completed by all Year 9s, is a globally recognised award that builds resilience and the soft skills that support learning and wellbeing in all areas.

The Dukes Program is complemented by the College Pastoral Program which uses the Rights, Resilience and Respectful Relationships curriculum as a springboard for engaging young people in conversations about their emotional and social health.
