Take Me Outside Day
Exploring the forest, listening for animals and collecting leaves was all part of Take Me Outside Day on Oct. 24th in the Lower School. Our urban campus backs onto the lush Duncan Mill Green Belt. The Don River, which straddles our backyard, is home to countless habitats and native trees. Students spent time foraging for twigs and rocks to turn into crafts and special class projects.
It was seven years ago when Colin Harris ran across the country as part of a campaign to encourage more outdoor play and exploration. His mission is to motivate young people to put down their screens and get outside to enjoy the beauty of our neighbourhoods.
