Outdoor Learning Center School Enhancement Project: Phase I

Over the past couple of years, the staff of Helen Gorman Elementary School has been engaging in professional learning regarding the benefits of outdoor learning environments.  In the spring of 2020, the school along with our PAC submitted a joint School Enhancement Project which would see an Outdoor Learning Centre created in two-phases. The enhancement project was approved, and in November phase one was completed. The Outdoor Learning Centre will positively impact teaching and learning at Helen Gorman Elementary School by ensuring that students have the opportunity to connect with nature through a hands-on approach. The Outdoor Learning Centre supports inquiry as well as the ability to authentically embed Indigenous perspectives in our work. We also are confident that this project will help students develop the core and curricular competencies found in BC's curriculum. The vision for our Outdoor Learning Centre has been a joint venture between our wonderful Parent Advisory Council (PAC) as well as HGE teachers Mrs. Soukeroff, Mrs. Dawson, and Mrs. David. We thank our PAC for their generosity and hard work, and we also thank Mrs. Soukeroff, Mrs. Dawson, and Mrs. David for the time and effort in bringing this project to fruition.
