School creates outdoor classrom

Here, a school recognised the potential of this area to become an extension of their teaching and learning philosophy. The specific features and stimulus of this outdoor environment provide opportunities for engagement and investigation that cannot be replicated inside. The design, along with close proximity, allows for easy access and a non-disruptive flow between learning areas.

Walkway connecting classrooms and defining areas of play

Gull winged seat, great for sharing

Water, sand and gravel pit for general play.

All seats in the area were individually designed.

Rocks and a zig zag beam for balancing.

Paving stones formed part of the quiet area that also contained seating.
