Mortlake College

We travelled out to Mortlake College at the end of 2012 to work with a fantastic group of Grade 6,7 and 8 students. I have to admit to being a little surprised - these kids put us through our paces! The teamwork displayed by these students was really something to see - a testiment to the values and teaching that has been taking place at the School.

Kerry Bowden, Mortlake College Welfare Officer, had the following to say about the MetaMorph course:

What was the most useful activity of the course? Why?

Marble run as it demonstrated some of the key teamwork and leadership skills. It also required persistence and resilience of all involved.

How successful was the facilitator’s delivery? Why?

The students responded really well to Michael. He outlined the requirements of the group but got the young people to contribute to it. He treated them respectfully which reciprocated.

What would you tell other teachers / Schools about the MetaMorph program?

The Metamorph program is a great opportunity for staff to see students in a different light. It facilitates peer connections beyond the program especially when the students reflected on the challenges. It has given then great insight into what makes effective leadership and team work. I would highly recommend this program to other schools both for student and staff sessions.
