Edmonton Catholic Schools
OutClass™ Outdoor Classrooms transformed a number of school properties across the Edmonton Catholic Schools Division into custom outdoor learning environments. We focused on designing flexible learning spaces that allowed students to connect with the outdoors while expanding classroom capacity and providing resources to help teachers transition to an outdoor-based curriculum. The outdoor learning spaces included blackboards for teaching, solid, stable, natural seating and curriculum & equipment storage.
Effective outdoor education goes beyond the traditional concept of outdoor classrooms. It requires more than just open spaces, green fields or outdoor classroom furniture. At OutClass™ we understand that for a truly enriching experience, students need a living canopy overhead and living soils underfoot. The inclusion of a vibrant schoolyard forest brings life and vitality to the learning experience, fostering a deeper connection with nature.
