More outdoor learning areas are coming to School District 58.

Last year, Collettville Elementary unveiled its beautiful wooden outdoor classroom, and now the local district is working towards the creation of two new structures.

“We are now in the engineering stage for outdoor classrooms at Central and Nicola Canford. They are scheduled to be tendered and constructed by the spring,” said Darrell Finnigan, SD58 Operations Manager.

While the outdoor classroom at Collettville was crafted out of logs, the new classrooms will be made of metal. (The classroom at Collettville was a school initiative, not a district plan)

“What we're working towards is a metal structure so it can’t be damaged or burnt,” added Finnigan.
