College Development - Phase 3

Outdoor Area and Sensory Garden - March to May 2015

Funds have been raised to create an outdoor learning environment within a sheltered courtyard at the newly opened Victoria College.

The area will be resourced with a large Rhino wheelchair accessible greenhouse, a sensory garden, planters, benches, a pergola, shade canopies, a large wooden table, and gardening tools.

Students will use the area for learning and for leisure; they will socialise with friends during break times, and the gardening activities will give them real-world learning experiences outdoors. Students will use all of their senses to participate and learn; they will handle soil and seedlings; water, feed and nurture plants; so producing vegetables and flowers for cooking or decoration. They will learn where food comes from, and how to cook tasty dishes, helping them to lead healthier lifestyles.
