The Outdoor Learning program focuses on the concept of using the outdoor environment to enhance student learning through the formal and informal curriculum.

It involves educators and students

  • working together to explore and then design outdoor spaces using natural materials to foster learning through play;

  • teaching materials and resources for mainstream subjects which use the outdoor environment as the starting point for learning in subjects such as Science, Maths, and English; and

  • approaches to enhancing the outdoor physical environment of the school and its capacity to encourage learning (e.g. quiet areas for contemplation, areas for games and social interaction).


AFFLIP has contributed $26,000 to the Outdoor Learning Program, the majority of which came from the fund established in memory of Di and John Harris.


The SMEC Australia Foundation have recently donated a $7,500 to the program and Finstro $6,300.
