A Word From Our Chair
The 2018-19 year has been another busy one for POET. With 10 schools and 162 professional development days for our teachers, Donald, Gemma and Karen have had their hands full.
Perry Outdoor Education Trust delivers teacher training to support teachers to deliver quality outdoor education programmes.
Our new Trustee & Patron
It is a privilege to be involved with Perry’s Outdoor Education Trust. In 35 years as an educator I have always been a passionate advocate of outdoor education.
The outdoors experience has been the driving force in my life, especially following a life changing experience at 15 years old.
Funding makes us function, both strategically and operationally so we believe it’s really important to spend wisely. We respect the trust our supporters have in us and we endeavour to maintain the highest standards of transparency and accountability.

What our sponsors say
I believe school camps are some of the most memorable events during your school life. It’s great to be helping, even in a small way, continue giving children the opportunity to create these memories. There’s nothing like the outdoors to learn about the benefits of taking some risks and understanding more about yourself and those around you.

First Credit Union believes it is so important for young people to experience Outdoor Education. With an increasing usage of technology and social media being outdoors encourages them to enjoy adventure and appreciate the amazing environment we live in. They have the opportunity to gain so many skills such as teamwork, communication and resilience and can also gain a new self-confidence from these experiences. The benefits of these adventures can be taken back into their everyday lives and communities.
