Outdoor Education PAD2O.
Educational research has clearly identified “frequent contact with natural habitats” as the single most significant experience for students in becoming informed and active on behalf of the environment. The vital link between simply possessing knowledge about the environment to that of demonstrating environmentally responsible behaviour requires conviction, and that, research has shown, results primarily from direct learning experiences in the outdoors.
Within our school system, there exists a greater need than ever before to balance many of the worthwhile “technological initiatives” with “ecologically-based opportunities”. Students need both “high tech” and “high touch” learning to be considered literate for the world of today and tomorrow.
Course Description:

Guided by Outdoor Education’s “3 R’s” (Respect, Relatedness and
Responsibility) the course integrates 3 themes.
