At General Brock Elementary, Skala Design is working with the Parent Advisory Committee to improve the school grounds by replacing asphalt with natural play environments that will inspire imaginative play experiences. Parents, staff, and students were consulted during the design process and two areas of the schoolyard were identified as priorities for improvement.
The outdoor classroom garden was completed in 2010, and it provides sensory play for children, as well as the opportunity to learn outside. More recently, Skala Design worked on the implementation of a new rain garden at the school. This is a great example of phasing.
