Students continue with their educational journey by developing independence as growing young men and women. As they progress to a higher year level, more is expected from them. Many of the activities they do in this year level reflect this. Early in the school year, the students participate in, what is for many, their first camping experience at Wilsons Promontory. Students also experience their first mixed age interschool sport, teaming up with Year 9 and working with them. Learning how to play competitively amongst many who are older, bigger and stronger is yet another part of the growing process.
Students discover that teachers expect more from them and begin to notice that their workload increases, and they have more responsibility for completing their class and assignment work. Life in Year 8, however, also includes fun-filled activities and the annual end of year bicycle ride along the Warburton Trail is enjoyed by all. Students also celebrate the demands of assessment period with down time activities such as pancakes and hot chocolate breakfasts. By the end of Year 8, students are ready for the next stage of their journey and are equipped with the necessary skills needed for higher schooling education.
