Our recently renovated Outdoor Learning Area is a hidden retreat where each class can take learning beyond the classroom. 

Outdoor learning has many benefits:

  • builds confidence, independence and self-esteem
  • develops teamwork and problem solving
  • encourages curiosity and exploration empowering children in the natural environment
  • improves spatial awareness and motor development 
  • brings history and art to life, develops and enhances geography and science.
