Fusion Group

The Orchards Fusion group is an extra curricular activity for a specifically chosen group of year 7 & 8 students. It takes place every Thursday with a focus on cross curricular links. Students are challenged to develop their social, mental and physical well-being facing a variety or tasks. They will create a portfolio of all their endeavours as evidence.


Each week the group will face a task/activity that challenges them outside of their classroom environment. These tasks may include; Archery, First Aid, Team building, Finance, Cooking, Fundraising, Innovation, Art & Design, Problem Solving, Orienteering and many more.


The idea is that the students are encouraged to learn skills that they can put to use later on in life. It also offers them the opportunity to build social relationships, develop mental strength and increase their levels of competence and confidence not just inside school but in the local community as well.


07.12.17- Tonight the group took on an aboriginal art challenge.

They were tasked to research examples of aboriginal art and the tools they used to create this art, they then had to create their own pieces using only cotton buds. The results are amazing- well done!
