Outdoor Classroom Day discussed in Scottish Parliament

2nd November 2018

Yesterday, on Outdoor Classroom Day, we were delighted to see a Motion placed by Ruth Maguire MSP discussed – and supported – in Scottish Parliament.

The Motion put forward said:

Outdoor Classroom Day

That the Parliament notes that Outdoor Classroom Day takes place on 1 November 2018; understands that this is a global campaign to celebrate and inspire outdoor learning and play  believes that thousands of schools, including many across Scotland, will be participating by taking lessons outdoors and prioritising playtime; considers that outdoor learning improves children’s health, engages them with learning and leads them to develop better social skills, enhanced problem solving and team working skills; commends the work of organisers to promote participation by schools in Outdoor Classroom Day, which takes place on two dates each year to fit with term times, and notes the hope that such events will encourage more time learning outside every day.
