The Outdoor Education program has been a long running tradition here at Vincent Massey School. For over 35 years the program has continuously been a leader for the CBE in Environmental and Outdoor Education initiatives and direction. A program rooted strongly in tradition strives to send students into the outdoors as leaders for tomorrow, independent and strong.
As an Outdoor Education program, our main focus is to provide our students with an authentic learning environment, one in which they are directly a part of whether that is planning, organizing and of course implementing. There is a large portion of the course outside of course!
Children who are given opportunities to develop relationships with the natural world and other living things are stronger advocates for the environment and develop increased pro-social environmental behaviors as adults. This is one of my main objectives as a teacher of this program.
So hopefully we see you on one of the many adventures offered here at Vincent Massey! If you have any questions, comments, ideas or just want to say hi, please feel free to stop in at Vincent Massey or email Mr. Rustemeyer at any time.
Dont forget that life happens outside so never stop exploring. Remember to walk your path...its the one way to find your own journey.
