About Our Work

Perry Outdoor Education Trust equips schools in low socio-economic communities to develop young people using outdoor education experiences.

Professional Development

Perry Outdoor Education Trust delivers training to provide teachers with the skills to deliver quality outdoor education programmes.

For many of my students, the opportunities that are provided are a first and encourage them to continue to strive to expand their horizons.

Bush Navigation PD today. Awesome to see our teachers out today improving their navigation skills and making great connections with other outdoor teachers. ... See MoreSee Less

๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข Really gutted to discover we've had gear stolen. Thieves have taken some of our tents, all of our back packs, 58 cookers, compasses and other gear that's all vital to our programmes and getting our rangatahi and tamariki outdoors.

Unfortunately this gear is not covered by our insurance so we're appealing to our community to help us track it down. Its all marked up with POET so if you are out and about can you keep your eyes peeled!

We really need to get our gear back or replaced because now more than ever we need to get our young people engaged in education.

Awful news, and so heartbreaking for all your team and those whom you support in our community.

Set up give a little page ๐Ÿ™‚

That is so disappointing and devastating ๐Ÿ˜ข I hope your gears found quickly or able to be replaced ๐Ÿ˜”

So sorry to hear this news team ๐Ÿ˜ข

Oh how horrible can some people be ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

This country has a dishonesty offending crisis.
