Hi my name is Andy Farnworth and I am the new Outdoor Education Coordinator for Waterloo Lodge School. I have a Degree in Outdoor Education Studies from the University of Cumbria. My previous Job was working in an ADHD and LD Adventure summer camp instructing young kids in Climbing, White water rafting, Mountain hiking and Mountain biking
My aim for our students is to experience a new approach to learning by exploring the natural world and learning in a creative, active way. I believe that by working as a team to complete tasks our students will build stronger relationships with peers and also support staff. This will also encourage our students to step outside their comfort zones and learn how to deal in difficult situations. Our Students will be spending Thursday’s in their class groups getting out of the classroom and trying activities such as Climbing, Cave bus, Low Ropes, Team building games, canoeing and kayaking.
I cannot wait to share more details of new adventures and great pictures of our students having the time of their lives. Bring on the challenge, Bring on the Adventure!
