Outdoor Education Update

Students from The Orchard Centre have begun taking ownership of the woodland on site. This week, along with other activities, we’ve begun to clear rubbish that has accumulated over the last few years when the site has not been used. Along with hundreds of crisp packets and plastic bags that have blown in from the adjoining roads we’ve found some more unusual items including a selection of footballs, an umbrella and a hole punch.

As part of our developing creative curriculum at Orchard we’re offering outdoor based courses to all of our students. The conservation work we’ve started this week will count towards the ‘Conserve’ section of the  the John Muir Award and the ‘Volunteering’ section of the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
