Trinityhouse Pre-primary Randpark Ridge took part in the Outdoor Classroom Day on Thursday, 12 October. This is a global campaign to celebrate and inspire outdoor learning and play. Teachers planned lessons and fun activities for the children to enjoy a day of learning outdoors. Painting, building, water play and obstacle courses were all part of the learning activities for the day. Outdoor learning improves children’s health, engages them with learning and leads to a greater connection with nature. Play not only teaches critical life skills such as resilience, teamwork and creativity but is central to children’s enjoyment of childhood. The children had a wonderful time spending time outside doing some of the things they love.
