Experiential & Outdoor Education Trips
Week Without Walls (WWOW)
At Meadowridge, our MYP students start the year off a little differently than at most schools. It’s a little difference that makes a big difference, and it’s something that our students and teachers look forward to every year: Meadowridge’s Week Without Walls (WWOW).
The WWOW trips continue to be one of the most memorable events of the year, and for good reason:
They Build Community
Teachers and students – both new and returning – have a great opportunity to get to know each other outside the academic confines of school.
They Encourage Adventure & Risk-Taking
Students take part in a variety of novel and challenging activities that provide an opportunity for success and growth.
They Satisfy the Duke of Edinburgh’s Outdoor Component
In grades 9 and 10, students complete the outdoor component of their Duke of Edinburgh Award Program (Bronze and Silver).
They Get Students Living In & Learning In the Outdoors
Students learn through living; they learn to cook for themselves, to canoe, to pitch a tent… they learn skills which cannot be taught in a class
