Nature Play

At Star of the Sea, our close proximity to the beach, together with our association with the Marine Discovery Centre means that Nature Play is a part of our culture where students have the opportunity to explore, construct and play with natural objects – logs, beach sand, rocks, water play etc in our natural play area.

Nature Play enables our children to use their imagination and creativity, to tinker, play in the mud kitchen, create cubbies and explore water. This fosters a connection with Creation and awareness of how to manage and take care of our natural world and how and when to take measured risks in play.
