Branch Out believes that all students have the ability to be resourceful, confident, engaged and active learners. Our outdoor programmes by their very nature encourage physical well being and mental health.
Learning by doing
Green audit is a fun Eco themed team building challenge. Students tackle the environmentally focused tasks which are designed around problem solving, critical thinking and creativity. Points collected throughout the event will give an advantage for the final big challenge. Lots of fun, laughter and excitement.
The Green Audit tasks encourage students to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses while sparking questions about environmental issues. Communication, problem solving, working with others, time management and planning are essential!
Teachers can avail of our brief and debrief teaching information sheets that can be used for classroom sessions . These are designed around strength based education and the SPHE guidelines for goals, objectives, learning outcomes, and conclusions.
