The Forest

The Forest

In keeping with the philosophy and principles outlined above, in 2013 we embarked on the development of additional natural play areas to complement our abundant grassed areas, with a series of mounds interwoven with attractive landscaping and an ever growing kitchen garden.

‘The Forest’ is a large area at the front of the school which we have been vigorously planting with native trees and shrubs to attract children’s curiosity. Not to mention bird-life.

We have filled the space with ‘natural spare parts’, limbs of trees, brush, logs, cut off disks of trunks and stumps with which the children construct a whole range of structures. As the forest develops it provides places for children to hide and run through and many opportunities to sift through leaf litter, look under logs to find bugs and explore mini eco-systems.
