At a Trillium Lakeland District School Board meeting on August 24, superintendent of Learning Paul Goldring introduced the plan for an outdoor education review committee.
The committee will have the responsibility of reviewing the Board’s outdoor education programming and its locations, which will include the Yearley Outdoor Education Centre, according to the meeting minutes.
The committee will also develop a long-term strategy for outdoor education for TLDSB students. As a short-term strategy, Grade 6 students will attend Camp Muskoka during the 2022-2023 school year to ensure students continue to receive outdoor education opportunities during the duration of the review, according to TLDSB.
TLDSB also stated that it is committed to continuing to offer outdoor education experiences for students. An update with recommendations will be provided after the outdoor education review committee has evaluated options for outdoor education in TLDSB.
