Designed to help students become more aware of their environment and to enhance personal and social responsibility for environmental action, the Environmental Education Centre is the ideal setting for outdoor education.
Students are totally immersed in environmental education during intensive 2 day / 1 night programs. Programs are multi-disciplinary and focused on ecological principles and concepts and includes time to pursue a variety of recreational activities such as hiking, campfires, folklore , role plays, bird watching, orienteering and community building.
Programming is available from mid-September until the end of November and again in May and June. Curriculum based environmental education programs are developed, booked and implemented by District School in the Eastern School District. The Eastern School District also sponsors the Brother Brennan Environmental Education Centre to help make school programs affordable. Further details of student activities, organization and booking information is available by contacting Bill Tucker.
