Outdoor Place Based Learning Programs

Outdoor place based learning is a key focus and teaching philosophy in our school. Place-based education promotes learning that is local and considers the unique history, environment and culture of Cultus Lake. It recognizes and uses students’ own “place” or immediate schoolyard, neighbourhood, town or community.

Outdoor  and community locations in the local communities of Cultus Lake, Soowhalie and Columbia Valley are used to  provide students with a “hands-on, first hand experience” in learning their curriculum. For more information on our outdoor programs check out the following pages on our website

  1. Nature Kindergarten Program (Information)
  2. Outdoor Place Based Learning Grades 1 - 5
