Adaptive Journey in The Jockey Club Sarah Roe School
Over the past 12 months, we have been fortunate to receive funding support to be able to train our staff to be better able to work with participants with physical challenges. This training has been supported by the purchase of equipment that also allows these participants to have boats that meet their specific needs.
Building on this experience, in March Jockey Club Sarah Roe School organized their first secondary camp with Outward Bound. It is an amazing experience for the students, parents, helpers, and volunteers when they are able to engage in kayaking for the first time especially when the idea of this would have been unheard of several years ago
It was a real success with students having opportunities to try all sorts of activities that stretched and challenges them. Outdoor and group activities that are out of students' normal routines and out of home really help to build independence, teamwork, and a number of skills.
