Fall Bonding Class Works for Junior High and Senior Elementary
In lieu of the fall bonding trips, we arranged for Jessie Sternberg from https://leapadventures.ca/ to begin the school year with leadership training for the Junior High and Senior Elementary students.
Many of our students know Jessie (aka Cedar), who has led some of our Fall/ Winter trips for the Senior Elementary class.
Dearcroft has worked with Jessie for the past 20 years through our outdoor educational experiences, and she did a fantastic job of beginning the school year for this group.
Our students really enjoyed participating in many outdoor activities which included self-reflection, survival skill challenges, trust games, mindfulness, and a bonfire circle. These skills helped to build strong bonds between classmates and to help them to reflect and grow as a class community.
