My name is Amanda Kennedy. I am a grade two teacher and the Chair of the Outdoor Classroom Committee at Phoebe Gilman P.S. We are currently in the process of building an outdoor classroom and need to accumulate materials to facilitate outdoor learning activities. Eventually, these materials will be kept in a storage bunker by our future outdoor tree circle classroom. Our staff, as well as the YRDSB, see how students benefit from outdoor learning experiences on a regular basis. We have a large school population and expanding our outdoor learning material collection will allow for more staff to take their classes outside.
