Year 7: Hero’s Journey Main Lesson

The students are immersed in a study of Arthurian Literature and through their reading discover the dramatic battles for honour and chivalry. They see the inner and outer struggle of individuals to subdue their impulses of greed, dishonour, lust, power, pride and envy and the constant striving necessary to be truthful, merciful, compassionate, faithful and kind. The unit offers them the inspiration of high ideals which counterbalance the turbulence of adolescence.
