At the beginning of Term 1, the Blue Edge program commenced at Blair Street and is a partnership run by Blue Light with Victoria Police combining physical training, mentoring and life skills.
The program runs Tuesday and Thursday mornings with 12-15 students attending each week.
The program involves:
- 45 minutes of physical training fitness circuits and team building activities
- A shared breakfast
- Workshop discussion by the Police or Blue Light Facilitator around topics including relationships, personal development, life skills and leadership.
In Week 4, the Victorian Police Dog Squad attended the session and the police dog, ‘Puma’ provided a demonstration to the students.
To conclude the program at Blair Street this Term, students will attend a day event of activities at Kinglake Forest Adventures Camp.
