WRENS

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-Esteem

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.


  • Physical Development

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.


  • Builds Resilience

Attending the WRENS might aid in developing resilience. It helps them learn how to tackle challenges, analyze the situation, and come out victorious.


  • 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.


  • Encourages Intellectual Development

Children should be able to enhance their concentration, recall information, and think more critically as they get older. Cognitive abilities allow youngsters to comprehend the link between concepts, grasp the chain of cause and effect, and develop their analytical abilities. The outdoors is a rich environment for children to explore and learn about the world around them. Through WRENS pupils will have fun learning facts about a range of topics like animals, plants, ecology, nutrition, survival skills, and more!

  • Character Development

WRENS is a great place for kids to make friends and learn how to interact with others positively. It allows them to express themselves as individuals without feeling as if they’re competing against each other. Not only that, it gives children the opportunity to work together towards common goals.
