Making a Difference to Our World
Trailblazer is a Hampshire County Council scheme, all about ‘learning to learn’ outside of the classroom. It includes discovery and exploration of the environment, as well as connecting to and caring for the natural world. We aim to provide our pupils with environmental and adventure activities that challenge them to aim higher.
By giving St Alban’s pupils direct experience of the outdoors, we develop their knowledge and skills across the curriculum; our pupils learn about themselves, developing their physical health, mental wellbeing and spirituality. They connect with each other and their environment, developing a sense of place and community.
By the time they leave St Alban’s, we aim for our pupils to have developed a love and respect for the natural world, befitting our Christian ethos of stewardship. Trailblazer gives a unique opportunity to develop lifelong environmental learning and pro-environmental behaviours; these give pupils a sense of empowerment and benefit both people and the planet.
