FOUR of Mansfield Secondary College’s year nine students have returned to school, having spent last term at the Snowy River Campus, learning leadership skills.

Twins Millie and Demmi Christopher, Taylah de Munk and Nic Howland spent their time at the camp undertaking a range of physical and mental activities that have seen them return to school brimming with confidence and self-belief.

The campus, situated at Marlo in East Gippsland, is one of four locations specialising in leadership training.

There were 45 students in total from the Hume region and from the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, supervised by more than 20 staff.

Each of the Mansfield students roomed with a student from another school, which meant that by the end of the term strong friendships had been forged.

As well as some exciting physical challenges that included hiking, caving, surfing, riding and canoeing, the four spent much of their time in personal development classes, developing thinking and presentation skills.

They were all fascinated with the Herman Brain Dominant Instrument tests, which determined if they were right or left brained and what their personality traits were.
