OLG’s Mission Statement

“The Outdoor Learning Gardens committee is dedicated to providing and maintaining natural spaces on our school grounds where the Atkinson community can have sustained and meaningful interactions with the living world.

The gardens provide environments for observation, investigation and active hands-on learning. The activities used in these living classrooms foster curiosity and imagination, and create passion for and further the students’ and teachers’ knowledge of the natural world.

We aim to promote, in our school community, socially responsible, culturally sensitive and environmentally aware behavior.”
