Forest School South West Gathering

16 April 2014

Who can come

Spaces are limited and priority is given to peoplewho are already qualified and practicingForest School Leaders or Assistants, and members of Forest School Association (who qualify for a discount). It's not suitable for people who are still training or thinking about it as there are other events around that would be better focused for them. However do ask if you have extra reasons for wanting to attend. Please let us know what qualification and experience you have to help us prioritize places.  

The plan

Most of the plan will be worked out both in the weeks beforehand and at the event itself, using various participatory methods. However we have already had a request for beach activities, so its starting Saturday morning on the beach, before journeying over to the woodland site for the rest of the weekend activities. On this form please let us know what you can bring as a skill(s) or knowledge to share and what you'd really like to learn or discuss. We will probably have an online discussion in the weeks beforehand so keep an eye on the facebook page and do request an add to the Forest School South West Group if you have a facebook account, as well as on The Forest School Association Website

Venue details

Broadhempstead Community Wood itis a site (50 acres) just outside Torbay and some activities will take place on the beach. This site has basic features, a store shed compost loo, and no shower facilities. Drinking water is available on site, but will be replenished over the weekend as needed. Treat this a 'wild' camp.
