The Year 9 Camp held in Term 3 enables students to develop skills in leadership and team building. Activities such as rope courses, canoeing and abseiling help students to confront physical challenges and move outside their comfort zones.

All Year 9 participate in leadership training courses during Term 4 to prepare them for the leadership roles of Peer Support Leader or a Facilitator in the High Resolves program. Students not selected for either of these programs still benefit from the intensive 2 day training programs and are able to utilize their leadership skills through involvement in the SRC, Prefect Body or other leadership activities such as MUNA or school representation in their senior years.

Students from Year 9 are also selected to train as baristas for the school's Café Gratitude. This café is student-led, and the students learn how to make and serve a range of coffee styles in a professionally run café situation. Students not only learn the art of making fine coffee but also develop in confidence and learn valuable workplace related skills.
