As part of the Synergo Challenge Course, the goal was to provide students with outdoor activities to help team building skills, and create an environment where everyone has to work together.

Students supported and helped one another as they took turns belaying peers on different courses. The day included both low and high elements where every student was able to partake in experiential learning.
