High School Team Building – Why Is It Important?
High school team building is a must! Year 11 can be a stressful time and this calls for something fun for everyone. The impending pressure of the Higher School Certificate (HSC) is firmly on their minds. These students will soon be competing against their peers to achieve the highest rank in their subjects to achieve their ideal ATAR. Although this may come across as an individual effort, teachers will remind them the strength of their cohort does give them a great advantage through the moderation system for internal marks.
There are many opportunities for fostering cooperation and sharing. Building a strong team environment amongst students is a great way to:
- Support amongst peers who may be stressed.
- Create an environment where students are free to express themselves.
- Encourage communication amongst students.
- Solve any conflicts amongst students.
- Provide fun. It seems simple, but taking students’ minds off the daunting nature of their exams can build a strong team environment.
- Reinforce the values and vision of the school’s culture.
- Model cooperative and collaborative behaviors.
- Prepare them for social demands of school and later for the larger society.
- Encourage collaboration with one another.
