Learning Outside the Classroom
March 30, 2012 :: Posted by - Tracy :: Category - Brag
In the rural township of Ashfield, Ontario, near Lake Huron, lies Brookside Public School. Brookside’s greater community includes families from Lucknow, Dungannon, Auburn, Port Albert, Kingsbridge and Goderich. These West Coast communities are rich with unique ecosystems and environmental gems, such as the Nine Mile & Maitland rivers, beautiful Lake Huron, Wawanosh Nature & Conservation Centres, several Provincial Parks, Hullett Marsh, Saratoga Swamp, Greenock Swamp & Wetland Complex and much more. It’s the perfect environment for students to expand their learning outside the classroom by applying their knowledge and understanding to the real world.
Brookside Public School has recently entered the Majesta Trees of Knowledge contest where one lucky Canadian school will be awarded a $20,000 Outdoor Classroom, and they are now one of the ten finalists! Congratulations Brookside! But we need your votes to help Brookside’s Outdoor Classroom become a reality. You can vote once a day, everyday, until May 17th, 2012. So please vote now and help us spread the word! For more information, please watch this video or you can go straight to the voting booth here! Thank you!
