The John Muir Award vastly differs from the traditional ‘green’ agenda by promoting adventure, personal growth, enjoyment, art, culture and creativity. Wellington pupils have taken part in a variety of activities in school grounds and urban settings, National Parks, coastlines, rivers and woodlands. They have explored topics such as sustainability, biodiversity and citizenship as well as themes surrounding the curriculum.
At Wellington, the Award is used to illustrate to pupils that the environment is at the heart of adventure, learning, creativity and wellbeing. It is an integral part of the Primary 7 experience and an excellent precursor to the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
