Kokoda Track Leadership Program

Proudly sponsored by Club Mulwala and supported by many other organisations, community groups and individuals.

Students in Years 10 and 11 have the opportunity every two years to apply for the Kokoda Track Leadership Program.   

Our team for 2017 has been selected, consisting of ten students and two teachers.  This group will embark on the journey of a lifetime in September of this year.

Goals/Aims

A team of 10 students and 2 staff (teachers) travel to Papua New Guinea and undertake a nine day Australian Guide led trek along the Kokoda Track.

Provide high level practice and knowledge in team building that links to core community priorities.

Create an opportunity for these students to develop into ANAZAC Ambassadors – providing high level speaking and ambassador duties that represent the community in the ANZAC tradition.

Add-on to an already existent high level experience program and formulate a pathway to our Year 12 student leadership program.

This will enhance our commitment in regard to the ANZAC day and the tradition.

Extension to the following current commitments carried out by Yarrawonga College P – 12 students:

  • student speaking at dawn service
  • high level marching of leadership teams (SRC and Year 11 leadership group) at Mulwala
  • year 12 marching at Yarrawonga Service
  • students delivering address for Remembrance Day at Yarrawonga and delivering high level assemblies in regard to Remembrance Day and ANZAC Day within Yarrawonga College P -12.

In addition students selected for this leadership program will be required become official ambassadors.  They will be requested to speak at forums and perform all duties required of an ambassador not only within Yarrawonga but throughout the district and region.
