Join the global movement and take your classroom outdoors in Australia on 1 November 2018. On the day, thousands of schools around the world will take lessons outdoors and prioritise playtime. Outdoor Classroom Day Australia inspires and celebrates outdoor learning and play, so sign up and join the movement, be you a teacher, parent, supporter or partner. It's easy to get involved and there is something everyone can do.
Teachers can use Outdoor Classroom Dayto try it out, parents can talk to the school about the importance of outdoor learning and play and encourage schools to get involved, and an organisation can get involved as a partner to spread the message far and wide.
The impact of outdoor learning and playtime at school and beyond is powerful, with children's behaviour improving, whole classes excited to learn and those who aren't fans of the curriculum often thrive in an outdoor environment. Recall your own happiest memories of school, and frequently it's about the joy of playing outdoors. It's a no -brainer to move forward towards developing enhanced social skills, problem-solving, and teamwork amongst other attributes, and it's seriously fun and addictive.
