Purpose and Goals
About the Killarney-Shebanoning Outdoor Environmental Education Centre
The Sudbury Catholic District School Board strongly believes in providing students with outdoor experiential learning opportunities. In 2009, the SCDSB created The Killarney-Shebanoning Outdoor Environmental Education Centre. The Centre provides a safe, positive, hands-on and fun outdoor learning experience for elementary and secondary students. Our curriculum-based programs not only inspire students to connect with nature but also encourage a life-long motivation to learn in the outdoors. Through various programs offered, students can learn about the natural world, gain self-esteem, build peer relationships and explore traditional Indigenous teachings. Classes have the option of travelling to Killarney or taking part in one of our many outreach programs at locations in the Sudbury area. Outdoor education is a valuable teaching tool in achieving our goal to educate the mind, body and spirit. The programs offered at KSOEEC encourage learning through academic, physical and spiritual activities.
