TLDSB decides not to use Yearley Outdoor Education Centre next year
Trillium Lakelands District School Board announced Tuesday that the Yearley Outdoor Education will not be used in the 2022-23 school year. Instead, students will have an overnight outdoor educational opportunity at a different location than where it has historically been for the Grade 6 program.
Superintendent of Learning, Paul Goldring says that due to some operational health and safety issues regarding overnight accommodations and on-site food preparation, a decision has been made to continue the outdoor education programming at a different location for the 2022-2023 school year.”
TLDSB says the use of the Yearley Outdoor Education Centre will be evaluated long-term along with other facilities and families will receive more information from their school in the fall about the details of the outdoor education experiences planned for students.
