Year 10 Leadership Trek

Each year, students in Year 10 at Coolum High are given the opportunity to develop their leadership and teamwork skills by participating in a three-day trek through the Conondale National Park at Sunday Creek.
Students who nominate to participate, undergo an interview from which only 24 students will be chosen.  The Trek is designed to enable students who are considering student leader positions in Years 11 and 12, to challenge themselves.
Two teachers and a guide from the Sunday Creek Outdoor Education Centre accompany the students.  The guides are particularly gifted at working through concepts with students, to help them cope, not just with the physical challenges of Trek, but more importantly, the mental obstacles as well.
While leeches, sore legs and exhaustion abound, students overwhelmingly are appreciative of their experience on Trek which helps students grow into leaders, not only of the school, but of our community in the future.
