About the Course
Take it Outside! Film Premiere
Date and Time
On Saturday, November 4 the Bluewater Outdoor Education Centre in Wiarton will be the home of the Film Premiere “TAKE IT OUTSIDE,” a documentary with intimate access to four students through the 2021-22 school year. It was a unique year teaching important lessons about how education can adapt to children’s evolving needs.
As the kids navigate challenges like managing trauma and fitting in as a newcomer, it becomes clear that the more time they spend outside at school – be it during recess, an outdoor math game, a skateboard lesson or a field trip – the better prepared they are to handle what life throws at them.
TAKE IT OUTSIDE is one example of the growing global outdoor learning movement and shines a light on the challenges, rewards, and importance of creating this systemic change. Isla, Jayce, Tobi, and Mason’s stories and complex situations make the case that creating incremental but daring changes meets children where they are, rather than where we want them to be.
The afternoon showing will be at 1:00 pm in the barn - bring your blankets and lawn chairs!
