This is the Lower School Outdoor Education Project’s eighth year. Each September brings grade-levels up to spend one day at the fields to play games, build friendships and learn to work as a team.
After these multi-class team-building days, each class returns to visit the outdoor site three or four more times during the school year. The visits are spread throughout the seasons to give everyone the experience of the changes that happen in nature throughout the year.
For some, this was their first visit to the project. For others this was a welcoming back. We exercised our muscles with the run around the field. We played on the amazingly lush green fields.
We explored the hedgerow, picked a few brambles and wandered through the garden. These days are dedicated to renewing and building new friendships.
This year the spirits were very high as we enjoyed some of the finest days of the summer, filled with sunshine and fresh air!
