Nature Day is an important part of the Synapse program both for social emotional growth as well as the development of an appreciation for nature. As a school that encourages change and fosters the growth of future change makers, we feel it is important to develop an appreciation for our earth through experiencing nature and learning more about it in a hands-on, authentic way. In line with many of the EQ competencies, the program helps develop and support growth in our students that is unique to Nature Days. Nature Days also support growth in resilience and grit. The program builds on itself in each Level to scaffold growth in stamina for outdoor activities and growth in responsibility for nature and self.
Each Friday for one trimester, Levels I, II and III head to Filoli Gardens in Woodside.
