International School Grounds Month
Wednesday 1 May
All through May
“In May each year, the International School Grounds Alliance calls on schools around the globe to take their pupils outside to celebrate their grounds. It’s as simple as that. We believe school grounds are very important to children and youth, and shape their experience of the world around them. If you agree with us, we hope you will take some time during this month—an hour, a day, even a week—to go outside into your grounds with your students to engage in learning, play and other activities.
How can your school participate?
There is no right or wrong way to take part. Go out into your school grounds during the month of May and use them as you’d like. Consider taking academic lessons into your grounds, or promoting play outside, camping out in your schoolyard or inviting parents to the school to watch a play outdoors—whatever works best for your school.”
