Campus greening at St. Anne’s School of Annapolis

| August 01, 2015, 11:00 AM | 0 Comments

SASA_ProjectGreen_1A few improvements to the campus exterior are taking place this summer at St. Anne’s School of Annapolis. Learning takes place outside just as much as inside the classroom. These improvements will support that learning by enhancing the school’s “outdoor classroom.”

As outlined in the 2014-2017 Strategic Plan: Inspire, Inquire, Innovate St. Anne’s School is moving boldly forward with a number of projects that are part of a larger plan to transform the school’s campus in to an extension of the classroom – bringing the outside ‘in’ and the inside ‘out’ – by engineering systems and sustainability features that are visible and interactive for students and teachers. During July and August, that effort has two focuses: a functional garden and playground improvements.

In July, a dedicated team of volunteers built and planted a garden to grow vegetables, herbs and flowers on the back side of the school. This garden will serve as a teaching and learning tool for students, faculty and summer camp as our community plants, grows and cultivates a vibrant array of produce. The garden project will be incorporated into the school’s academic programs and social justice curriculum in the years ahead. On the playground, tire shreds were replaced with eco-friendly wood mulch chips. There is also a new piece of play equipment that is planned for the playground to accommodate students as the school improves campus green spaces over the next few years.
