I was extremely lucky to work alongside some amazing people, both the tutors and students alike, who had a wealth of knowledge and were brimming with enthusiasm and ideas it was infectious. I learnt about so many new subjects and learning strategies I felt enthused and eager to get back to school to put my ideas into practice. It was a very intense time but I feel that it has enlightened me.
Since discovering my passion for Forest School my work and home life have changed dramatically. I have learned to have more faith in my own children and our children in school. I have learned to allow them to lead and that it’s ok for me to not always be in charge, to allow them to take risks and make their own decisions, to give them back their voice and to let them be heard.
