Hampshire Collegiate School’s (HCS) officially opened their Learning Outside the Classroom (LOC) HQ last Friday.
The building, which is situated in a wooded area within school grounds was officially opened by special guest Professor William Scott, Chair of South West Learning for Sustainability Coalition, from the University of Bath.
Children from Years 1, 2 and 6 were present as the ribbon was cut to mark the official opening and everyone enjoyed a piece of celebratory tree cake. Afterwards, Year 6 students attended a Q&A session with Professor Scott.
Head of the Junior School, Mrs Teresa Rogers said: “Learning outside the classroom has long been recognised as having huge benefits for children and young people. We are fortunate at HCS to have over 130 acres of grounds, giving our pupils an outstanding outdoor space to explore, to play, and develop skills such as good communication, team work and leadership. The classroom will provide pupils with an excellent base from which to learn about the wealth of flora and fauna that surrounds them.”
