Understanding risk, and not shying away from it, is an important life skill. Adventure education introduces pupils to risk assessment in a supportive school environment. They go on to demonstrate and adopt behaviours that will help them lead a productive and interesting life. One in which they are organised and flexible, willing to have a go and open to learning from their experiences.
The ability to get outdoors in order to explore and experience adventure not only helps children let off steam, it plays a vital role in equipping them with the necessary skills to set them up for life after school.
Adventure activities at school create a platform for pupils to set themselves apart and, as a consequence, develop into the person that they aspire to be. In short, what you learn through adventure education can have a profound effect on the development of your character and your entire future.
