Outdoor Experiential and Team Building
In May 2001 Sights-n-Venture Tours designed and conducted an Outdoor Experiential and Team Building program for The Chinese High School. The program took place over one week and involved a wide variety of activities designed to instill the values of group dynamics, personal achievement and self-awareness within the students.
In November of 2000 the Singapore Chinese Girls School conducted a similar Outdoor Experiential program that took them around the southwest of Western Australia. Activities that can be included in these programs include intensive team building programs, abseiling and rock climbing, raft building (image below), canoeing, orienteering and camping.
GBC Great Educentive Exchange
Sights-n-Venture Tours, in association with the Tourism Western Australia or TWA (formerly known as the Western Australia Tourism Commission) have participated in the GBC Great Educentive Exchange (GEE) in Singapore. The aim of this event was “to promote interesting, exciting and meaningful educational” tour programs to Singapore educational institutions. The audience comprised principals, heads of departments and bona-fide teachers.
Being a specialist in educational tours, Sights-n-Venture was invited to the Exchange to promote Western Australia as the preferred destination for educational field trips. With the support of GBC Travel, Singapore Airlines, TWA and other Australian operators, a familiarisation tour of Western Australia was organised for a select group of teachers and principals in 1999. The familiarisation was a huge hit, as the participating teachers subsequently organised field trips for their schools to Perth and WA.
Sights-n-Venture Tours have the knowledge and experience to conduct tours ranging from sightseeing to educational programmes that require research into specific themes. From the research, project worksheets can be compiled on behalf of institutions to test the knowledge and observation skills of the participants. The vast and diverse landscape of Australia offers many opportunities for the participants to maximise their choice of destinations as well as enrich their experiences.
Outdoor Experiential Training
We can also design itineraries revolving around team building, self-awareness, group dynamics and social interactive activities. These interesting low-risk outdoor activities bring out in the recipients qualities as broad as leadership, responsibilities, confidence, teamwork, perseverance, curiosity and creativity.
Sights-n-Venture Tours can organise adventure programmes throughout Western Australia, New South Wales, Canberra and Victoria. Programmes could be of any duration and at any time of the year. Itineraries include field trips, school camps and adventure courses such as caving, canoeing, abseiling, rock climbing, low and high ropes courses.
