Here's some recent feedback from Pathhead Primary School, who came to the Centre and had an experiential learning day for the whole school:-

"The best in-service! The enthusiasm from the leaders made me much more enthusiastic about outdoor learning!"

"A fantastic and enjoyable day… so much I can take back to school!"

"Great day! Time for reflection, team bonding, ideas for use back at school!"
