The Learning Environment

All our learning environments, whether they be indoor or outdoor, are designed and utilised in a way that promotes each boy’s learning, interactions, and sense of agency. We strive to maintain environments that invite and encourage hands-on learning, collaboration, investigation, exploration and discovery.

At Christ Church Grammar School we are fortunate to have access to the Swan River which is a key component of our early childhood programs. With particular acknowledgement given to the local Aboriginal significance of the land that we gather on each day, our intentional use of the Swan River engages boys’ natural curiosity and wonder for the natural world.

Access to nature provides an unpredictable, ever-changing environment that builds boys who are positive risk-takers, self-aware, self-confident and resilient, all skills required for future academic success. Nature-based learning is beneficial to a child’s intellectual, physical, emotional, spiritual and social development.
