Outdoor Education

Outdoor Education is a year-round program held across the street from the Junior Academy at the Canadian Film Institute and Windfields Park. Students explore the parklands to study science-related topics and engage in physical education. The river, fields, and forest offer a rich, green environment for hands-on learning and fresh air.

The importance of outdoor education cannot be overstated. It provides students with practical, real-world experiences that enhance their understanding of the curriculum through inquiry-based learning. This approach encourages students to ask questions, investigate, and discover answers on their own, fostering critical thinking and problem-solving skills. By learning in a natural setting, students develop a deeper appreciation and respect for the environment. Additionally, outdoor education promotes physical fitness and well-being, as students engage in physical activities while breathing fresh air. These experiences also foster teamwork and collaboration, essential for personal and academic growth. Overall, our outdoor education program enriches the learning process, making it more dynamic, engaging, and impactful while promoting a healthier and happier lifestyle.
