Transition Year

 

Transition Year

 

The Breesy Centre has been providing residential and day trips for schools for a number years. Over this time we developed a number of programmes that promote personal development through adventure and fun. We believe in providing a mix of adventure, team building, fun and education to each of our programmes, helping each student develop their personal growth with a positive self-image, promoting self-awareness, leadership skills and decision making.

What we offer

We can offer a range of TY programmes, tailored to fit the needs of each group. Syllabus field studies can be provided and drama clinics are available at your request.

Location

The rural location of the centre provides a safe and secure environment for the students, with our 24 hour supervision and separate accommodation for teachers insuring a pleasant and relaxing experience for all. With a varied and diverse selection of both outdoor and indoor activities, we work closely with each group in advance to build a program and timetable to meet the needs of each individual group.
