Loving no limits!
We have two incredible groups of students getting stuck into No Limits at Keysborough Secondary College this term - one group of guys and one group of gals! The early weeks are a time of getting to know each other a little better, and getting involved in activities and discussion that see the students start to challenge themselves, look at things from different perspectives, solve problems and work together as a team.
The exercise with the tarp always gets brains going, as the students work together to solve different challenges, while keeping all participants on the tarp!
Group discussions give students the space to explore important topics in ways that they can engage with.
Quick energiser games keep the blood pumping, get energy levels up, and provide more opportunity to engage with each other, get to know each other, and have fun!
As the students progress through the process over the coming weeks, they will be challenged about how they see themselves, how they see others, their own potential and the choices they make. Practical exercises will stretch them, teach them and help them to experience values like trust, respect, teamwork and commitment.
Right alongside the students are the No Limits team, which includes Robert Coller from YaFT, working together with Chaplains and Welfare staff from the school, and our amazing volunteers who are supported by their workplaces and families to give up three hours a week to be involved as mentors.
The change we see in young people through No Limits is just amazing - and it's all made possible through YaFT, the support of schools and their staff, our volunteers and YOU - those of you who donate the funds needed to run this process.
