Schools & Colleges

Many teachers see their pupils in a new light and it can offer an opportunity for groups to build a level of trust and respect not always achievable through normal classroom interaction.

Team skills and communication are essential parts of everyday life but these skills have to be developed and practiced like any other ability.

As we know, play and experimentation are powerful learning tools and can provide tangible emotions and experiences to draw on later in the classroom.

Whether it’s a first time visit, an annual excursion or a weekly event, will always provide a day to remember. Most importantly this can all be achieved in a safe and supportive education based environment.

Schools are all about teamwork and here is the perfect chance for staff to work together in a totally different environment and try something new on an inset day.

What our customers say…

I wanted to thank you for hosting us yesterday and actually managing to control everyone during the archery and team building activities. Absolutely everyone enjoyed learning a new skill and overall I think the afternoon was a great success! I think the way you explained what we needed to do was great and also you kept everyone informed and focused during the team building activities was really good. The facilities were perfect for what we wanted to do and I will be talking to colleagues and other managers within Orange to recommend this as a great venue and activity if they want to do something similar in the future. I would definitely consider coming back again with the team and either do a similar format or something completely different where we can learn something new again. Thanks once again.

Our Daughter’s Birthday Party at the Activity Centre was fantastic! Our instructor was very professional and kept the children engaged (which was some feat!) The party food was exactly what a group of young children would like and there was plenty of it. Thank you again for a great party!

I just wanted to thank you for our outdoor activity session last Saturday. Everyone enjoyed the day and I really appreciated all of your organisational work and management of the morning, especially the flexibility around the time spent on various activities. The archery was really good fun!

Just a quick email to say a massive thank you for Louie’s party on Saturday! It was a great success and Louie absolutely loved it!
The instructor deserves a big thank you too, as he was very good at keeping them all engaged and they all worked well as a team alongside him.
The treehouse was a great base for them to use after all the running about catching the footballs.
Anyway, it all went very well and I shall definitely be recommending your parties to other parents. All the feedback I have had from parents/children who attended has been very positive!!!!
Thank you again!
Jennie Anderson, Birthday Party parent
