MEANINGFUL EXPERIENCE DELIVERED WITH GREAT CARE

“During programs, OEG have a high quality of care for students and school staff. OEG staff are aware of the needs of students, well informed about the program details, and take students and school staff through the process with clear communication to ensure all participants are adequately prepared for each activity and stage of a trip.

I particularly love the creative reflection activities that OEG staff run at the end of activities, days, or journey programs, that cleverly encourage students to share their experiences and extract meaning to take onward with them through their lives.”
