We are delighted to announce that from 8 December 2018 Explorus Adventure Learning will form part of The Outdoor Education Group family.
Explorus is a well-established Outdoor Education provider based in Karridale, 300 km south of Perth in the Margaret River area of Western Australia. They currently work with 15 schools and over 3,000 participants per year, primarily from the Catholic and Independent sector.
Both organisations are highly respected, experienced and have developed extremely successful partnerships with our client schools. Explorus joining The Outdoor Education Group marks an incredible milestone for both organisations. We are extremely excited about the potential this unlocks to make learning outdoors accessible to more young people across Australia. Together, we will have more impact by leveraging our combined strengths in a way that would be impossible on our own.
The Outdoor Education Group and Explorus have been engaged in discussions about this opportunity for most of this year, and through these discussions, we have discovered just how much our cultures and values align. Both organisations care deeply about developing individuals through challenge, building communities and fostering connections with the environment to make a genuine difference in the world. Together, we will continue to do just that.
We can also confirm that the long-standing owners, Nicky and Simon Hanson, as well as their key program delivery staff, will become employees of The Outdoor Education Group from 8 December 2018. We welcome the opportunity to be working together and can’t wait to get Real World Ready with greater impact than ever before.
