  • Are gaining personal confidence and self-esteem through taking on challenges and achieving success.
  • Are developing their self-awareness and social skills, and their appreciation of the contributions and achievements of themselves and of others.
  • Are becoming alive to the natural environment and understand the importance of conservation and sustainable development.
  • Are acquiring and developing a range of skills in outdoor activities, expeditions and exploration.
  • Are demonstrating increased initiative, self-reliance, responsibility, perseverance and commitment.
