Happiness in Good Relationships

Good relationships make us happier and healthier. Fact! Other people matter, your happiness and well-being is directly impacted upon by your relationships and connections with others. 

Body Image

Real happiness and success comes from the strong relationships we form as well as fundamental human qualities such as resilience, humility, enthusiasm, persistence or the desire to achieve a positive or worthwhile outcome. 

It's these kind of social skills that young people learn and the new relationships they form on a residential trip that develops their confidence and enhances a real sense of belonging. 

What are the outcomes of forging strong relationships?

  • Opportunities to break down existing barriers, hierarchies and power relationships
  • Students and teachers work more collaboratively in unfamiliar surroundings on unfamiliar tasks where the teacher is not automatically the expert
  • Students are more willing to ask for help
  • Opportunities to develop and practice key social skills
  • Young people feel a real sense of community and belonging
  • Residential trips are a leveller for students and staff

On a residential trip, in an outside environment, youngsters are not judged based on their academic achievements but instead are valued in different ways and discover new ways of being successful

Strong relationships84% of secondary school students and 71% of key stage two pupils said that because of the residential trip they get on better with other pupils in their class.*

A Rockley adventure focuses on inclusivity, team spirit, encouragement, motivaton and fun - with that comes self-belief, achievement and positive life-long friendships. 

Other people matter, your happiness and well-being is directly impacted upon by your relationships and connections with others.
