On the 16th June, Planet Ark and Cool Australia hosted their very popular Grounds for Learning Teachers Webinar. The webinar offered a wonderful opportunity where teachers learned how they could use Schools Tree Day to grow key learning areas across the Australian curriculum and EYLF for childhood educators, primary teachers and seondary teachers. 

Schools Tree Day is the largest nature care event in Australian schools. Last year, nearly 2500 schools across Australia participated in Schools Tree Day in recognition of the benefits of nature-rich learning environments to children. The benefits to children include;

  • Boost in learning capacity
  • Increased creativity
  • Increased problem solving abilities

These benefits, and many more, are well supported in recent research published by Planet Ark and sponsored by Toyota.
