SOLE

Sustainable Outdoor Learning Environments (SOLE) is a school-wide focus on developing a culture that makes our campus an inspiring educational model of environmental, social and economic sustainability.

Key Points

  • We intentionally seek out outdoor learning environments that complement and enhance children’s development and wellbeing.

  • We frequently visit the Bush Block to ensure children experience and enjoy the special nature of being outdoors and grow in their appreciation of the natural world and how to care for it.

Learning... naturally

Children learn naturally through play and our children are immersed in a rich play environment where they have opportunities to engage in meaningful activities which will foster growth, learning and development – physically, cognitively, socially and emotionally. We value the importance of the outdoors and believe it is the ideal context to encourage children to be themselves, to explore, to experiment and to move.
