The magic of learning outdoors
The magic and wonder of nature is front and centre on Outdoor Classroom Day, this week Thursday 5 November. Swing open the doors and swap the indoors with the outside classroom to prioritise nature and embrace this year's theme, Love the Outdoors!

If ever we needed to celebrate our natural world and be grateful for spending time outside it has been 2020. Coronavirus has been a disruption like no other, especially as lockdowns have meant limited or no access to the outdoors for many children and their families.

With a focus on fun, this global campaign is about more than one day; it is a catalyst to inspire more time outdoors every day. Its driving force is to inspire and celebrate outdoor learning and play. Outdoor Classroom Day has grown from a grassroots movement back in 2011 with just a handful of schools participating, to a popular international campaign – involving more than nine million children worldwide, including kids from Australia and New Zealand.
Reflecting on Jean Piaget's theory and influence
One hundred years ago, psychologist Jean Piaget's curiosity in cognitive processes was sparked while working on children's IQ tests. This experience was the impetus for his highly influential Theory of Cognitive Development, which triggered a massive change in direction in how child development was perceived and studied at the time.

Piaget's theory, published in 1936, shattered old beliefs as he concluded the traditional idea of considering children as "empty vessels to be filled with knowledge" was incorrect, instead describing children as "little scientists" who learned through exploring, interacting with, and acting upon their environments.
