Just like any team, sometimes things can get lost in translation, especially if others have a different communication style to us.  Team Building programs offer the opportunity to further develop our communication skills and also determine the best way to effectively communicate with your fellow teachers.

Problem Solving

Teachers are quick on their feet and excellent problem solvers by nature, BUT how we work with our colleagues to solve a problem can be very different to a classroom setting.  Team Building programs provide teachers with the opportunity to problem solve together, learning new techniques from each other that they can not only implement in the classroom, but also in life. 


Teamwork, makes the dream work, but this wouldn’t be possible if we didn’t TRUST the other members of our team.  No, we aren’t going to make you do any crazy trust exercises where you need to blindly fall into your colleagues arms and hope that they catch you; but rather create a sense of trust with your fellow teachers so that you have confidence not only in their abilities, but also in yourself.

Solutions for Students

Programs your students will love!  If you want shake it up, add some excitement and try something different for your next sports carnival, leadership camp or incursion, then step this way.

While we aren’t all born leaders, team building programs provide opportunities for students to step out of their comfort zone and develop key leadership skills.  Developing leadership skills will provide students with confidence to take on more responsibility not only in a classroom setting, but also outside of a school environment as well. 



As with teachers, it is important to acknowledge that each individual student has a unique communication style.  Team building programs help students recognise this not only in themselves, but also in others and assists them in identifying effective ways to communicate with the group.  Once again, these skills go beyond the classroom and will equip the students with effective communication skills that they can take with them through life.


Last, but certainly not least team building provides bonding opportunities for students.  It allows them to get outside of their usual friendship groups or cliques and encourages them to interact with fellow students that they may not have interacted with otherwise.  Not only might they make a new friend, but it will also expand the way they approach a problem and may introduce them to a new way of thinking too.

What a great ending!
