UWCSEA Grade 9 and 10 Mt Rinjani OED Expedition

Over the past several years, Dr Christopher Wolsko, Associate Professor of Psychology, Oregon State University—Cascades, and Dr Michael Gassner, Outdoor Adventure Education Consultant have been studying the outcomes of Middle and High School students’ Outdoor Education experiences at UWCSEA. They have witnessed numerous ways in which these trips have improved students’ psychological wellbeing, their internalisation of profile skills and qualities, and their sense of connection with nature. While the effects of these trips on personal, social, and even academic development are multifaceted, the cultivation of grit and resilience has always been a primary aim of the outdoor expeditions, and this year’s hike up Mt. Rinjani was a testament to that endeavour.
