On Friday, November 22 the Outdoor Education Committee hosted an OE Trip Reports event where past and present members of the Greenwood community shared their experiences in the outdoors.
The Grade 7 and 8 students heard from Andrea Waugh ‘14, a past Greenwood student who shared her message about the outdoors and the importance it has for a person’s mental health. Eton Carrington ‘20, Anna de Pencier ‘21 and Alyssa Hanson ‘21 spoke to the Grade 9 students about their respective 50-day canoe trips. Claire Dixon ‘21 and Sara Warner ‘21 shared their experiences about their exchange trip they took to British Columbiaand got the Grade 10s excited about their Grade 11 Fall OE trip to B.C. next fall. Finally, Rex Taylor, who taught at Greenwood from 2002-2011, talked about the origins of the outdoor education program and how it has since evolved at the school.
The purpose of the OE Trip Reports is not only to highlight the incredible accomplishments of individuals in our community on their various adventures, but to emphasize the importance of outdoor education and the positive impact it can have on your life both while at Greenwood and beyond.
