See Katitjin in action!

Posted April 3, 2019 in Katitjin, Student News By Richard Ryan

Wesley College offers a program unlike any other in West Australia. For one term we take the boys out of the classroom to learn in an entirely different environment.

We call this program ‘Katitjin’ after a Nyoongar term meaning ‘to listen and to learn’.

For ten weeks in Year 8, students are taken away from traditional desks to learn Science, Maths, English and other subjects in real-world situations, from monitoring nature in the Swan River to engaging in literacy programs with people in need.

After taking on this range of challenging and inspirational situations, the students will have explored team dynamics, leadership skills and the real meaning of community.

To explain it more fully, we’ve created this video. Please take a look!
