Outdoor Education

What's great about Outdoor Education?

 

Outdoor Education at Kingsmead has been specifically designed to capture the heart of the outdoors and all that excites and engages young people. Our bespoke course includes Forest, Mountain and River sections. Applied methods of learning are utilised, where students will benefit by practicing a direct application of skills and theories taught out in the field.

Can you build and light a fire with a single match, it’s harder than it sounds? The learning outcome for this challenge is communication, preparation, planning and problem solving.

Topics covered will include: Edged tools in the wilderness; How to make fire and use it well; tree identification and use and shelter building.
