Bush School

St Brigid’s College resides in a beautiful hills landscape and recently teachers have implemented a Bush School Programme into the Early Years. The programme aims to engage students in nature play experiences and Bush School experiences offer meaningful, open-ended interactions to occur between children and the natural world around them.  Bush School learning experiences develop children’s inquiry, exploration, and discovery through an authentic connection to nature.  Bush School fosters an appreciation of the natural environment, develops environmental awareness and provides a platform for ongoing environmental education.

Our Inquiry Approach and beautiful environmental setting means that classroom teachers can implement learning experiences that develop practices to promote sustainability and conservation.  Students will have the opportunity to develop skills such as safe tool use, adhering to boundaries, caring for animals, fruit bearing trees and running creeks.

Through these Bush School learning experiences, students develop attitudes of respect, curiosity, wonder and awe of the natural world around them.
