Strategic Studies Through Roleplay
This subject is designed to equip you with practical leadership and decision-making skills. In this elective, you will be placed in a range of natural disaster, military, political, health and critical incident scenarios requiring you to work closely with team mates to make high-risk decisions. Can your team win, will you save the world, or will it be a disaster?
Learning takes place through a range of role play, strategy games, outdoor orienteering, and online learning opportunities. Your decisions will determine where each lesson will go. In the excitement of competition, you will also get a practical understanding of how the human world of diplomacy, laws, resources, politics, geography, and war works.
