Westerings' Remarkable Explorers and Nature Squad
Westerings' own version of Scouts or Girl Guides. Pupils engage in a range of activities within the school grounds and the local community, which are designed to foster and encourage:
Self-confidence is the key to success in any area of your life. It comes from within—from believing that you are capable of doing great things, despite what others may think or say about you. WRENS can build self-esteem in many ways because it gives children a chance to explore their interests and make friends through fun activities. WRENS helps children develop their self-esteem by putting them in situations that challenge their abilities and push them outside of their comfort zones. Through this challenging process, children learn to believe in themselves.
Nature is the best way to connect with yourself. While many children stay indoors, WRENS can provide a great outlet for their energy. It also teaches children outdoor skills they can use forever. WRENS gives children the opportunity to participate in various activities that encourage physical development.
Learn About The World
The outdoors is a great place for children to learn about their natural world and what it has to offer. WRENS will get their hands dirty and explore the many wonders of nature, helping them understand and respect it for years to come. WRENS also provides children with positive outlets for exploring things like basic survival skills if they ever need to use them. It introduces children to a myriad of different situations so that they may become well-rounded individuals.
