Empower your students by stepping outside the classroom

Excursions LP 2-1

DISCOVER THE NATURAL WORLD RIGHT AT YOUR DOORSTEP

Australian school students are set to graduate into a shifting workplace. These students need different skills to survive and thrive in this new world. Our excursions engage students in practical and active experiences beyond the classroom, allowing them to hone their communication and leadership skills, build confidence and enhance their resilience.


Learning in the outdoors increases students' physical, mental and social health. Through our excursions, they acquaint themselves with local parks and outdoor spaces while learning crucial skills, allowing them to navigate their futures with confidence. Single-day trips to local environments give students a taste of outdoor activities.


Our excursions are a carefree and affordable opportunity to enhance student learning by delivering teachable moments that are meaningful and memorable.
