Thank you for a fantastic night! A couple of the guys from my team just called to say (after playing skirmish and go-karting today!) they are still thinking about what a great time they had! We'll be back for sure!
I found myself getting swept up in the competition and enjoying every minute. The night was a blast. Let yourself try this, it’s worth it. Not too hard for beginners, and not too easy for Pros. 🙂 thanks for a great night. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Coming up with excursion ideas for primary school students can be a challenge even for the most seasoned of educational professionals. In the tech-focused world, we are all part of attention spans are shortening and the tendency to look toward a screen rather than engage with friends is an all too common sight, regardless of age.
While traditional days out of the classroom are geared toward learning that compliments a syllabus and students gain a greater appreciation by engaging directly, at Urban Quest we believe that practical, tactical experiences can not only teach young minds how to interact with their peers when faced with a challenge, but it can also reveal skills, traits and natural abilities students possess that perhaps may not be identified through traditional teaching methods.
Urban Quest is best known as the facilitators of ‘Amazing Race’ styled events geared toward team building, bonding and experiential activities. Over 5,000 people have taken part in our one of kind, adrenaline-fuelled interactive experiences in Melbourne to date.
However, while our events have been incredibly successful for businesses and the working world, we recognise the potential positives that these events could have on our younger citizens in terms of teaching them valuable skills that they can carry with them through their lives. As such, we have expanded what we do to make our unique experience available to school groups.
An Urban Quest event for students is high energy and last approximately 1.5 hours. It is a team competition full of puzzles and challenges that are based on logic, critical thinking, teamwork, orienteering and promises nothing but fun.
The game helps students build communication, academic and trust skills, and we can tailor the event to the age and abilities of the group taking part so that it is entirely appropriate to their level. It is the most unique of all school excursions Melbourne teachers and students can participate in, and this is the only place in Australia anything of its like can be found.
Urban Quest staff has over 10 years experience, are fully qualified, have vast experience working with young people and bring an infectious enthusiasm to the event that has left past participants raving about it for weeks after.
We take out all of the hassle involved with planning an excursion for a school group meaning this is an event that requires no additional work for teachers – just block out a time for the event and we’ll look after everything else.
Better still, we cater to students of all ages and can accommodate all grades from 1-12. The event can take place wherever the school wishes, be that on campus, or at another location such as a park, or in the Central Business District and we can host groups from 10 to 300 students of all fitness levels.
What’s more, despite technology typically isolating students we use specifically developed software to guide the students through the event via their own smartphones, or if the school provides mobile tablets they are also an option.
We can also track the progress of each student and feedback performance statistics. However, using mobile devices is entirely optional and we will still be able to create and run a unique event your students will both enjoy and learn a lot from.
So, if whether you’re all out of school excursion ideas or just looking for something new that will be fun, educational and an instant hit with your crop of students look no further than Urban Quest.
As we all know, schooling is about much more than just the simple sharing of information – students attend schools in a bid to bolster their social skills and learn more about who they are as people. These essential lessons will help them as they become adults and launch their personal and professional lives in new environments.
If you are looking for school excursion ideas, then you will want to give some serious thought to working with Urban Quest. We are very proud to offer exciting and invigorating experiences that will help your students to bond together and forge friendships that will last a lifetime.
Here is a closer look at why you might want to work with us and what makes our excursion ideas for primary school students so exciting.
Your students prosper in productive and warm environments. A critical part of cultivating this environment is helping your students to become acclimated with one another – the best people placed to help your students learn is their peers.
Our events are the perfect way to help your students feel comfortable and happy alongside their classmates. Our activities have been built from scratch to factor in bonding and group decision making, helping to ensure that every one of your students plays their role in helping their group to succeed!
We are also delighted to use the latest technology in order to create modern experiences that resonate with your students specifically. We know that balancing tech and real-world experiences is important, so we are happy to adapt the experience according to the amount and type of technology that you would like to be used.
We have partnered with a range of school and academic institutions in the past who have been happy with the way that we approach technology, helping to instil within your students an understanding of how it can be used in a practical and collaborative way.
Of course, it’s all about having fun at the end of the day! We go to great lengths to ensure that every attendee has a wonderful time and shares an experience that they will remember forever. From the dispensing of instructions to the guidance and post-event feedback, we ensure that everything goes smoothly and comfortably.
For one and a half hours, you can rest assured that your pupils are having a great time that will help to enrich their learning and relationships with those close to them.
We also know that safety is paramount, which is why we have taken all the precautions necessary to take care of our attendees. We have lengthy and rigorous terms and conditions that ensure everyone is safe while having a really fantastic time.
