Accessing the natural environment with a sense of purpose is intrinsic to the many benefits that we gain from being connected to nature. Students will take part in outdoor activities as part of the Enrichment Carousel in Year 12 and during our whole school Wild Monkton Days. This will include conservation, habitat development, and building outdoor infrastructure such as a wetland boardwalk or an otter holt.
Being in nature also facilitates our students to be more environmentally conscious, enabling an attitude and motivation to pursue a lifestyle that is more aware of issues such as climate change and the impact that this is having on the natural environment. We assist students with thinking this through and taking action with a number of activities and talks organised by the Sustainability Committee.
