Our school has been involved in the OBBY project which aims to discover and highlight the outdoor spaces in our local community for children and families to visit and engage with nature and each other. Student participation, voices and ideas are an essential component of this project. Torrensville Primary School, Lockleys North Primary School and Cowandilla Primary School all have student working groups who are involved in the project.
In April the OBBY working group had planned for a student excursion to parks and outdoor spaces in the suburbs of Underdale, Brooklyn Park, Cowandilla, Lockleys, Hilton, Mile End and Torrensville. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 this excursion was cancelled. As it is unknown when an excursion might be possible, students in the working group are instead being asked to visit some of these locations with the help of their families.
Attached here you will find a list of parks and outdoor spaces, a map, a list of activity ideas, and a table to provide feedback on these activities.
Please return feedback documents to Deputy Principal Silvia McMullen by Friday 24th July (Week 1).
This essential feedback will be used to develop a final list of locations and activities to be included in the OBBY resources that will be distributed throughout the community.
