Whitehorn PS team up with Lowes to build student success through outdoor learning

​Students and staff at Whitehorn Public School has teamed up with Lowe's to support its full-day kindergarten play area. In support of student success, Lowe's has donated and will help to build an outdoor learning environment for students, including sandboxes, planter boxes, benches, outdoor kitchens and chalkboards. Whitehorn and Lowe's will inaugurate the construction of the play area on Thursday, November 16, 2017 at 9:30 a.m. at the full-day kindergarten yard.

The outdoor learning environment provide students with a fun, engaging learning experience. Some benefits include improved learning and concentration, stronger health and mental well-being and reducing anxiety levels. Partnerships like this allow schools to build positive and meaningful relationships that enable resources that provide the best education to help students succeed. ​
