Addressing Challenges: Making Engaging School Excursions Effortless
Finding engaging excursions for school groups in Melbourne can be challenging, but Urban Quest Team Building Events are designed to make a school teacher’s life a breeze. We address all the key challenges of fun group activities and provide a solution that will ensure your students have a fabulous fun and educational day out.
Urban Quest is a leading Melbourne team building events provider. We provide digital scavenger hunts designed on team building principles delivered using mobile phone technology. An Urban Quest is an immersive adventure, where your students will experience team building, encounter the unexpected, succeed together, and use exciting tech features! Urban Quest has all the ingredients of an engaging excursion to stimulate even the most world-weary students.
But we know that is not the only challenge you as a teacher face when organising a school excursion. Here are some common difficulties that schools might face and how Urban Quest can assist:
Availability and Booking
Popular attractions and educational sites can be booked months in advance, making it challenging to find suitable dates, particularly for large groups. Urban Quest’s use of various public spaces and an event format that moves around the CBD can present the opportunity for a significant degree of flexibility when booking events. Urban Quest also provides the Priority Booking opportunity for those schools who want to lock in a rolling annual event, a ‘set-and-forget’ type of arrangement, even when unsure of your actual date.
Logistics and Transportation
Coordinating transportation for a school group can be complex and costly. Urban Quest starts and finishes most events from the State Library Forecourt opposite Melbourne Central with the Melbourne rail system immediately available, presenting an easy and hassle-free transport solution for many. There are park-based solutions available too, which are conveniently located close to public transport.
Budget limitations can restrict the options available for excursions. Urban Quest aims to deliver a cost-effective event designed to meet most school budgets to ensure any group can take advantage of this great team fun.
Most often your excursion is chosen to align with the current school curriculum. Urban Quest is regularly chosen to fulfil a life-skills focus meeting goals around team building, leadership, cooperation and communication. It is also a great match for year levels looking for a City Immersive Experience.
The best excursions are high on interaction, which should result in high engagement – two factors that are at the core of any Urban Quest experience. Challenges are designed for the active involvement of all team members. Also, the variety of challenges’ content, based on popular cultural references and local city infrastructure, ensures wide accessibility and interest.
Large groups can be challenging to manage, but Urban Quest is adept at using large open-air spaces and varied public areas to easily accommodate groups of any size.
Attractions often have specific time slots for guided tours or activities, which might not align with school schedules. To make your life easy Urban Quest runs a flexible schedule designed to fit easily with the timings of your day.
Excursions should be age-appropriate and tailored to the students’ learning levels. Urban Quest has a range of school excursions tailored to cater to different year levels.
Safety and Supervision
Ensuring the safety of all students is paramount. Schools should maintain an appropriate student-to-teacher ratio. There are a range of ways Urban Quests can be run to suit different supervisory requirements.
Weather and External Factors
Outdoor excursions can be impacted by weather conditions. Given Melbourne’s lucky climate, Urban Quests are most often able to proceed regardless of the weather. If there are particularly problematic conditions, Urban Quest is always happy to work with you to reschedule your event or tailor the best solution to suit.
Urban Quest knows the types of challenges all school groups face when choosing school group activities and seeks to make no challenge insurmountable. Careful planning, communication, and flexibility are key to ensuring that your excursion is engaging, educational, and enjoyable for all students involved.
