OutBeyond has been travelling throughout Southern China over the last 2 weeks.
We've visited more than 12 schools, worked with more than 790 school students, met school leaders and principals and assisted with the development of Australian based Outdoor Education experiences within Chinese schools.
Students have been taking part in experiential workshops with our team of Australian educators.
The workshops include an introduction to Australian Outdoor Education and experiences, understanding of how Australian Outdoor Education supports mainstream education in Australian Schools, basic activities such as navigation, pitching tents, preparing for expedition programs, identifying risks and hazards in the outdoors, ice-breakers and initiatives, leadership and development and much more.
As OutBeyond continues to deliver Australian education workshops in Chinese schools, we are also developing experiential education programs abroad with these key school and education partners so that students can experience Australia first hand.
