Now in its third year, Outdoor Classroom Day is a worldwide movement where lessons are held outside to celebrate and inspire outdoor learning and play.

Locally, more than 80,000 Western Australian children – including more than 45 per cent of WA’s primary schools – will take their classes outside today.
