West Coast OWL Group – Connecting and Networking across Wester Ross and Skye
West Coast OWL “hatched” in January 2021 with expertise in Forest School practice, child rights and safeguarding, outdoor learning and wellbeing, philosophy of education, arts and community engagement.
Our 2021 aims include:
1. Establishing a network for outdoor and woodland learning practitioners and projects. Sharing good practice and forming an Outdoor and Woodland Learning Community.
2. Working with schools and youth organisations to support the amplification of outdoor and woodland learning for children and young people
3. Working with local and regional organisations to support the amplification of outdoor and woodland wellbeing for communities
4. Co-creating and collaborating on future plans with our West Coast OWL Community
Margaret McMillan, an Early Years pioneer who studied at Inverness High School, recognised the value of outdoor learning:
“The best classroom and the richest cupboard is roofed only by the sky.”
