This unique residential program focuses on engaging students in activites that allow them to learn about the local environment and cultures. For the past three years, Wellington students have attended this program, improving their abilities in Thinking and Learning, peer skills, Leadership and Teamwork. The students implement a Community Learning Project on their return. This year, the Alpine students ran a successful fundraiser event and raised funds for Keysborough Animal Shelter.
