Illumine from the Students: Outdoor Education at BGGS
It is largely undisputed that spending time outdoors and in nature is physically and mentally beneficial. School camps are often designed to take these outdoor experiences one step further by inviting students to truly step outside their comfort zone, embrace the environment and explore parts of themselves that are not as easily accessible in our everyday lives.
But getting out of our comfort zone and embracing the unfamiliar can also bring some anxiety and apprehension—for both students and their parents!
In this episode of Illumine from the Students, Ms Jacinda Euler discusses the School’s Outdoor Education program with Year 9 students, Neve, Eva and Emily, and Director of Outdoor Education (Marrapatta Campus), Ms Kim Wood.
