Over the past 8 years, students of the Quest program at Oilfields High School in Black Diamond have held a very special connection with Kananaskis Country. It have been their backyard, their playground, and their classroom with biweekly field studies along its countless trails.
On March 18th the Friends of Quest Foundation will be holding an annual fundraising event to ensure the continuation of this program. The event includes dinner, a band along with a live and silent auction. All proceeds will go towards the Quest program for the students of the High Country.
The Quest program combines traditional classroom instruction with outdoor learning experiences to create a learning community that benefits from experiential learning, outdoor education, small class sizes and peer and teacher relationships.
Students in the program will complete all the courses required for High School Graduation and participate in outdoor field studies to meet these requirements. These trips focus on academic development, outdoor skill development, and the development of our learning community.
Furthermore this program contributes to building a relationship between each student and Kananaskis Country. An intimate experience of the value of this place and a fostering of stewardship values for its protection and management in the future.
