“OWLS has made a massive difference to my son’s life. It helped greatly with his transition back in to education through building up his confidence and resilience in outdoor sessions. The weekly sessions have allowed him to gain new skills, help form relationships and be all round happier in life. I don’t know where we would be without them!”

Teacher Voice

“He had problems with being part of a class, he had moved from the enhanced provision into class just a few weeks prior to his OWLS sessions. The transformation that I saw in that young man was amazing he went from lashing out at the slightest thing to being a responsible member of the class. During his time with OWLS he learnt how to overcome problems, deal with negatives in a positive way, work with others, talk about his feelings and emotions as well as learning new skills. After he finished his time with OWLS he became a more confident individual who spoke to the whole class about what he had learnt and even had enough confidence to take other pupils not only from his own class but from other classes and replicate what he had learnt on a one to one and lead in a group to show them. To this day talks very fondly of his time with OWLS and it has ignited a passion for the outdoors in him.”

ASL Teacher, Enhanced Provision, Aberdeenshire.
