Welcome to the Kukri Schools Expeditions pages – thanks for dropping in to have a look at some of the amazing trips we have on offer.
My name is Mark Beaumont and I am a Kukri Ambassador, I joined up with Kukri to help get people out there doing exciting events and adventures as I have been doing almost all my life.
I was brought up in rural Scotland so was given the chance very early on in life to go and explore and have my own adventures. I soon found that I loved cycling and started setting myself very ambitious goals, at the age of 12 I cycled across Scotland and at 16 I cycled the length of the UK, but the big one for me was in 2007/08 when I broke the Guinness World Record by cycling around the world in 194 days.
For me the thirst for adventure has always been there and I know that it’s the same for many of you reading this and for almost every school pupil the world over. When I joined Kukri I didn’t want us to just talk about doing adventures and expeditions I wanted to actually get people out there, give them the chance to join an expedition and experience the thrill that comes with it.
I’m sure I don’t need to explain what a trip to Borneo with Kukri Events is going to give your children or pupils because it’s easy to see that by challenging them early in life they are going to grow stronger physically and mentally. The expeditions are structured so they will learn new skills and develop existing ones, skills such as leadership, team work, communication; all the things that will help them be happy and successful later in life.
We look forward to welcoming your school on a Kukri Schools Expedition and we hope that any parents reading this we be inspired to do their own trip…you’re never too old for a bit of adventure!
