Outdoor School Program
This school division program is offered at Marion Graham Collegiate for one semester of a student's Grade 11 year. Five Grade eleven courses are combined to create a unique integrated outdoor program that is based on the concepts of environmental and adventure education. The outdoor environment becomes the classroom as students utilize local and regional venues such as the University, Meewasin Park, Nisbet Forest, and Provincial and National Parks on a regular basis. In addition, students will travel monthly to different ecosystems of Saskatchewan and complete week-long canoeing, cycling, backpacking, skiing, winter camping and survival expeditions. Consequently, students spend most of their time away from school and thus complete their integrated schoolwork immersed in the out-of doors. Most of the activities are physically and emotionally demanding, and students must be prepared for the challenge of an academically rigorous course. A fee wil be charged to cover equipment, facilities, expertise, and transporting costs, and students are required to supply some of their own personal equipment and gear (hiking boots, pack, sleeping bag etc.). This program is based on immersion experiences in the outdoors. Therefore, students must recognize that a high level of commitment is required throughout the semester. Interested students can make application to the program through the student Services office, and successful candidates must have demonstrated a high degree of independence, responsibility, trustworthiness and maturity.
