The value of Emu Gully Adventure Education
The results are in… Emu Gully Shapes Great Australians by enhancing relationships.
In today’s education climate there is a relentless pursuit of academic achievement. Unfortunately this is often at the expense of extra-curricular activities such as school camps and more holistic educational activities. Value for money and time are a primary consideration in addition to overall student wellbeing.
Adam Grant - our Facilitators Manager talks about self-efficacy
The Year 10 students from Victory College in Gympie visited us earlier this year. One of the students who attended the camp was Tristan. Tristan’s story has impacted every member of the Emu Gully staff and has cemented our mission of Shaping Great Australians. We hope you enjoy Tristan’s story as much as we did.
In memory of Private Norman Otto
Self-efficacy – I’ve heard the term, but until recently I didn’t understand what it meant. A session at the national Australian Camps Association conference explained it as an individual's belief in their innate ability to achieve goals.
Emu Gully's Avenue of Honour unveiled
We are proud to share with you the stories which now form our Avenue of Honour. The first of these is the story of Norman Otto. His plaque was unveiled at the official opening of the Avenue and was attended by members of Norman’s family.
The value of Outdoor Education
Emu Gully is proud to unveil the Avenue of Honour, featuring tributes to service personnel placed along the avenue of trees lining our driveway.
We inherently know that participation in an outdoor education program works, and here at Emu Gully, the anecdotal evidence of significant positive change is tremendously encouraging.
