Hands on learning is an innovative education program that caters to the different ways young people learn.
Hand on Learning fosters strong, long term relationships that helps young people develop the skills and abilities they need to succeed in work and life like collaboration, problem solving, communication, resilience and empathy.
Small groups of cross age students work collaboratively with two artisan-teachers. They form strong, long term relationships by engaging in significant building projects that benefit the school and the community.

A Chance To Give Back - Can We Help?
Making valuable contributions to the community builds self-esteem and connection, and provides tangible opportunities for young people to prove their value to themselves and the community by doing something that benefits others.
At Warrnambool College the team has created exciting new spaces around the school, landscaped and erected structures at the school entrance and built a pizza oven! They have also built community relationships with Warrnambool Food Share, Flagstaff Hill, Woolworths and Bunnings Warehouse.
Across Victoria our teams have worked on projects ranging from bush fire recovery fences and Scout Hall renovations through to possum boxes for relocation programs, sensory gardens for kindergartens, park benches, landscaping and tree planting, developing mountain bike trails, erecting bridges in local parks, or making picnic tables for a local primary school.
