Nature Play Cubby House
19 November 2021
At St Columba's we have loved enjoying our nature play cubby house when we are at school. It has had a makeover and now includes a nature art station where students can look through the windows to draw the beautiful nature surrounding it. We have a cozy corner to enjoy nature books and novels and a sensory wall to feel different recycled materials. Students have also enjoyed our bush kitchen to explore making things with natural materials. ...

What our parents & students say

"St Columba's is known as the little school with the big heart and you notice that when you first arrive. Every teacher and every student knows your child by name. They offer bespoke learning experiences for children to enjoy while at school."
