Real world learning and responsible, sustainable citizenship

Students have many opportunities to learn about the amazing environment that they live in here in Derby and in 2020 will have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge with a science specialist teacher with specialised background in Ecological science, as well as continue learning with the traditional owners of the lands around Derby and the wealth of knowledge they have about caring for the environment and sustainable practices. Students are challenged to apply their learning to real-world problems as much as possible, and to engage in nature-based experiences to not only cultivate their natural care and respect for the environment, but for the wellbeing benefits for which nature play is essential.
