Taking Children Outdoors

This week I decided to get outdoors with my youngest son.  We went for a three day hike in the Stirling Ranges.  This is a range of hills about three hours away from home.  The link here is to a five minute video of our little adventure.  Next year I am plannng to take our Year 7 class on a camp and have the children climb the Bluff Knoll section.  This is following my involvement in the camp in Wales earlier this year.  I really want to challenge the students with some nature based activities.

What an amazing video! Great to see all the work you're doing at school, too. The UK trip seems to have really inspired you.

Hi Stuart

Almost a year since you visited us. See you have had some adventures at school. Good to see you have set up a committee to look at outdoor learning in school. Hope this goes well for you.

Best wishes
