How our school incursions work

Reconnect Outdoors offer a range of different incursions linked to the desired learning outcomes of your current unit of study or inquiry and the Victorian Curriculum.

Our incursion programs are created and developed by teachers with over a decade of experience working in primary schools and as outdoor educational specialists both in Australia and around the world. These educators bring with them a wealth of expertise to develop engaging activities.

Who are our incursions for?

Each program is designed around your class. We prelude each incursion with an online survey for all students to complete – this gives us valuable insights into the behaviours and relationships your kids already have with the outdoors. This forms the basis of our incursion program as we tailor our teachings and activities around your class.

Reconnect Outdoors is currently servicing primary school children throughout Melbourne. For secondary school and regional incursions, please contact us via the form below.
