Outdoor Play and Learning (OPAL)

 Outdoor Play and Learning, children playingOPAL provides enriched outdoor play opportunities to support creative and diverse outdoor active play experiences.  OPAL play allows children to use their imagination and build on their cooperative skills by exploring the world around them.

At Blake, OPAL play is available throughout the day for all students from Kindergarten to Grade 6. 

 At Blake, we aim to make play based learning an integral part of our school day.  Our students engage in self-directed play using a variety of 'loose parts' (boxes, pot and pans, brooms, tires, logs etc.) to help them explore their environment.
