TGC WINS ‘Education & Learning Team of the Year’ at School Travel Awards!
Thursday 20th May marks a lot of things for the outdoor learning community; Outdoor Classroom Day, World Bee Day and this year, the highly anticipated School Travel Awards!
TGC was nominated by London headteachers for the coveted award of ‘Education & Learning Team of the Year’ against industry leaders: English Heritage Education Team, Science Museum Learning Team and Derbyshire Environmental Studies Service and we are incredibly thrilled to announce that we won!
“I’m immensely proud that our inspiring and innovative team has been recognized today as winners of The School Travel Awards ‘Education and Learning Team of the Year’. Says Marnie Rose, Founder of TGC.
“Our flexible and reactive outdoor nature connection programmes are quite rightly in demand by the communities we serve. Headteachers nominated our team and that says it all”.
The School Travel Awards is organised by School Travel Organiser Magazine to celebrate learning outside the classroom and to raise the profile of the value of school trips and visits for children. TGC was in great company, with the country’s industry leaders in attendance jointly flying the flag for the UK’s outdoor learning sector.
“The Garden Classroom delivers significant improvements to people’s mental and physical health and wellbeing and empowers more people to respect and protect the natural environment. We want children to be happy and we know that by taking children out of the classroom and utilising their local green spaces we can transform not just their learning but their well-being.” says Kay Richardson, CEO of The Garden Classroom.
“To win ‘Education and Learning Team of the Year’ at the prestigious School Travel Awards really credits our brilliant team for the transformational impact of our nature-connection work. Our experience proves that children thrive outdoors yet 75% of children in the UK spend less time outside than prisoners. Never has our work been more vital.”
We are incredibly proud and honoured to have won this award and thank School Travel Organiser for organising such a fabulous event.
