Limited seats remain for new, nature-oriented EKOLogy program

As East Kensington Elementary prepares to embark on its new, nature-oriented approach to learning, the rural Surrey school is welcoming new applications for remaining spaces.

Beginning this September, EKOLogy (East Kensington Outdoor Learning) will take advantage of the new provincial curricula and the school's pastoral setting near 184 Street and 28 Avenue to incorporate nature both inside and outside the classroom.Ekology registration.JPG

Kindergarten to Grade 7 students will learn about environmental stewardship and indigenous history, engage in place-based inquiry activities and have experiences that nurture social-emotional learning, self-regulation and positive relationships.

While EKOLogy is a first-of-its-kind for Surrey, nature-based, outdoor education has been on the rise across the globe, particularly in Europe and Australia.

East Kensington Elementary sits on a large property with a natural ravine and creek. In close proximity to locations such as Redwood Park and Semiahmoo Fish and Game Society, students will also discover

trails, streams, forested areas and aquatic environments within walking distance of the school.

The program is open to students in and outside of Surrey. Admission is on a first come, first serve basis.

To register, phone 604-541-1257 or visit the school in person at 2795 184 St.

For more information, check the school's website.
