“Direct contact with nature has immediate benefits for children's physical, mental and emotional health. Free play opportunities in natural settings offer possibilities for restoration, and hence, well-being." - Stuart Lester and Martin Maudsley.
We have adopted the experiential learning approach, where children partake in various ways in conservation. All the pupils from Grade 1-7 are taught outdoor adventure skills, including climbing, archery, camp cooking, orienteering, camp craft, cycling proficiency and bike maintenance through our outdoor education programmes. We offer skills and stamina development in canoeing, mountain biking, archery and trail running activities. These are often included in the camping expeditions that senior grades undertake and the extramural programme. The camping programme comprises a gradual progression from Grade 1-7. When circumstances allow, all pupils participate in at least 2 annual camps, some on campus, while others are held elsewhere.
