H-COURSE – YEAR 12

This is a very special machane for our Year 12 chanichim, and is a must for those who wish to become Bnei Akiva madrichim in the future.  The ‘H’ stands for Hadracha (leadership), and this course will guide you through the skills that will stay with you for life, not just for machane.

The week will end with all the theory that you have learnt being put into practice.  You will make a visit to a younger machane and become madrich for a day.
