Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
All members of our MC School family said, "We need more space for children to play outdoors."
We have have responded to this request by not only purchasing more land, but also conditioning it for dynamic outdoor learning at all developmental ages.
Some of the questions that we asked ourselves were, "How can we increase the space for all different ages to play? How can we reduce the noise level by separating spaces and using natural elements? Where can students congregate? How can we create a space that invites both for relaxation, study, discovery, and energy?"
Some of the elements we decided to include were the benches around the trees, not only to provide shaded seating, but also as a way to emphasize on nature.
Many elementary, middle school, and high school students wanted more playing fields, which is why a very large part of the new land for a new soccer field, which will later be covered with artificial grass.
The fountain adds a relaxing water element to the playground, and also provides a place of discovery for young children.
Another place of discovery is the tree house that is still under construction, which not only satisfies our own childhood dreams, but will serve as an outdoor classroom that will foster children's learning. The playground is a place of interaction, of activity, of learning. It is a valuable moment, which we want to emphasize and respect.
During a school day, when you go outside you will find a circle of students reading a book, others creating their own relay races out of unusual materials, others painting trees, and yet others sitting around a tree with friends laughing and enjoying their time.
