We are building an outdoor learning space with three zones that will allow students to develop their motor skills, engage in play that supports their individual learning needs and provides them with a calm area for reflection. The space will include:
- a 'Zen Zone' - a ramp-accessible gazebo space that flows to an outdoor seating area with an oversized chess board and speakers to provide calming music
- a 'High Energy Zone' - equipped for repetitive force movements (including large scale musical equipment, and push/pull force equipment such as hand water pumps)
- a 'Creative and Sensory Zone' - featuring a range of tactile surfaces (sand, large rocks, pebbles, logs, gravel, mulch) and a variety of sensory plants.
The Inclusive Schools Fund is a $20 million fund over four years, established to help Victorian government schools implement innovative projects that promote best practice inclusive school environments and support the educational and social needs of children and young people with disabilities.
