What is Outdoor Classroom Day?

Outdoor Classroom Day is a day to celebrate and inspire outdoor learning and play. On Thursday 18 May 2017, thousands of schools around the world will take lessons outside and prioritise playtime. Why? Outdoor learning improves children’s health, engages them with learning and leads to a greater connection with nature. Play not only teaches critical life skills such as resilience, teamwork and creativity, but is central to children’s enjoyment of childhood.

About outdoor learning at CIS

Outdoor learning plays an integral part of a student’s education at CIS. Our programme aims to provide students with a wide range of engaging, memorable and authentic learning opportunities which sharpens their brain development, creativity, independence and social and gross motor skills amongst other things.


The length and focus of our outdoor programmes varies depending on the age group. In Kindergarten, outdoor learning is inquiry and play-based and takes place most of the time in our Outdoor Discovery Centre. In the older Grades, it involves lessons in our Outdoor Discovery Centre as well as Open Minds, field trips, and excursion week.
