We were privileged to host 10 boys aged 14 to 16 from Sir Edmund Hillary Collegiate in Otara. These boys were selected to by ATWC staff for a leadership programme run by ATWC’s Social Works In Schools. Each of the boys had been identified by their schools as being in need of more support to reach their potential. The camp at Orama was the culmination of two terms of leadership sessions. The jam-packed 6 days on the island was geared towards bringing the boys out of their shells, encouraging them to be confident in themselves, and building trusting and respectful relationships with each other in a completely new environment.
