Is there a piece of the leadership or team development puzzle missing from your student group? Do you need some help in developing teamwork in a practical way?

The MetaMorph workshop is a senior Primary and secondary School leadership and team-building program focussed on achieving a balance between personal, team and task requirements as well as providing experiential learning activities that align with Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS).

img 2943 CCGS 1The activities designed for the MetaMorph workshop have been specifically designed and chosen to meet team goals through problem-solving, communication and light forms of competition between smaller groups, building throughout the workshop towards larger team synergy.  Kameleons activities are designed to elicit fun in learning, whilst maintaining the safety and emotional needs of all participants.

All of our staff are experienced facilitators and possess a Working With Children Check (WWCC). Here is what has been said about a recent MetaMorph course:

"Michael came and worked with our two Year Six classes at the beginning of 2010. His team building workshop was a great way to begin a year where pupils are encouraged to develop their leadership skills and work together in leadership teams. The activities Michael had devised were engaging, interesting and relevant to the year level. The pupils were highly motivated throughout the workshop and were especially keen on the physical nature of the tasks. The combination between physical and mental activities meant it catered for all needs. It was fantastic to see the pupils working cooperatively and supporting each other to achieve a common goal. I would highly recommend Michael to work with Upper Primary and Lower Secondary pupils." Angela Hawkins, Year 6 Coordinator, CCGS
