Education is the point at which we decide whether we love the world enough to assume responsibility for it, and by the same token save it from that ruin which except for renewal, except for the coming of the new and the young, would be inevitable. And education, too, is where we decide whether we love our children enough not to expel them from our world and leave them to their own devices, nor to strike from their hands their chance of undertaking something new, something unforeseen by us, but to prepare them in advance for the task of renewing a common world.
― Hannah Arendt
We embrace a student-led and deep-listening approach that lies at the heart of our educational philosophy. We recognise the importance of nurturing individual agency and creating opportunities for students to actively participate in their learning journey.
Up the creek will work with you to facilitate a meaningful authentic experience, tailored to meet the needs of your students and school. Our aim is to offer positive memories of people in nature that will last well past a students retirement. Book in for a free consultation where we can explore your needs. If there is a spark we can develop a program fit for context and purpose.
